I downloaded this to make bags for a friend and she LOVES them. She purchased quilting cotton for me and I made the straps from the bottom fabric. I like a heavier tote bag, so, when I make them for myself, I'll either add stabilizer to the cotton or I'll use home decor fabric. One yard of main (flower) fabric and 1/2 yard of bottom (red) fabric is enough for the exterior, interior, 2 handles. I stitched the boxed corners and handle hems twice, just for good measure. Beautiful on its own, the pattern is also easy to adjust for size, which leaves me with tons of options. I will definitely make this again!
