I made this Tote with normal quilting weight 100% Cotton fabric.  Medium weight interfacing was applied to the outside body of the tote for some added body.  I applied heavy weight interfacing to the straps. Binding was added to the top of the bag for a more firm edge.  This bag is great for day/shopping trips.  I added three pockets to the lining (one to accomodate a water bottle).   Both front and back of Tote have pockets between the straps.  I added my signature GY monogram to the front pocket.  This tote also has a closure with fabric covered button.  Finally, finished with lots of top stitching.  I like to use my blind hem foot, with a far left needle position for the top stitching.
