Simple Market Day Tote

A friend requested a simple market tote with short but wide handles and some sort of pocket for the bus ticket and loose change.
I came up with this. The fun cotton fabric is decorator weight, there's a zip pocket inside and she can stick it in the washing machine once it gets grubby, as the reinforced bottom is removable. It measures approx. 14 x 12 x 5.5 inches.
 
handy interior zip pocket:
On a side note: it's best to pre-wash all decorator-weight fabrics to remove some of the stiffness and get rid of the excess dye (usually the case for this type of fabric).

  10. This is a great bag and I really like the idea of a pocket in the bag for change and bus pass. Most totes do not have that and it really helps when you are shopping.
