This is Linda Lee's (owner of The Sewing Workshop pattern collection) favourite tote bag--thus the name L (squared), her nickname. It's the perfect size. Not too big, but holds a lot, a shoulder bag that fits snugly under your arm, lots of pockets on the inside, and it opens wide, but stays closed with clever magnetic snaps. It's so much fun to make in a beautiful fabric. Carry it as a handbag, put your regular purse inside it, or carry your laptop, baby supplies or beach toys in it. Either way, make one in this wonderful Japanese cotton linen canvas and it is sure to become your favourite.
The kit contains everything you need to make this bag except thread:
- pattern and instructions
- 1 yd Japanese cotton linen canvas print
- 1-1/4 yd linen cotton fabric in denim blue
- 1/4 yd heavyweight fusible interfacing
- one set pin type magnetic snap closure
