The tote design consists of a simple rectangular bag with two handles, but with a little imagination and the right techniques, these bags become wonderfully versatile accessories. The book guides both beginners and intermediate stitchers through all the possible totes and bags, from children's bags and simple shopper totes to stylish shoulder bags in contemporary fabrics, with patterns ranging from the fun to the functional.
