Lusco Land, then you already know how much I like Sew, Mama, Sew's Classic Tote Bag tutorial. It is the best do-it-all bag. I used them to hold/wrap Christmas gifts, for grocery shopping, library books, toys, overnight bag, and the list can go on. They come together in about an hour and the tutorial is very easy to follow. I made these two yesterday to send off to my sister-in-laws. These are both from upholstery fabric and would be great shopping totes. Hope they like them!
