Why not have two totes for the time and money it takes to make one? This project is for the temperamental person like me who gets bored with the same bag but is running out space in the closet so should not make another one. Ideally, this project is for the confident beginner who has made other simple bags and it is looking to expand her technique. The ability to sew a straight stitch and cut fabric in a straight line is imperative since all the seams need to match. Tote bags are super functional and there are a plethora of fashionable styles. I prefer the kind I can change according to my mood and outfit. A reversible fabric vinyl tote bag is my way to go. The vinyl side for a more upscale look and the fabric side for a more relaxed outfit. On either side, there is a bag you can use with confidence and style.
