Patchwork Tote Bag

"A fun, straight-forward and easy-to-sew design; perfect for beginners who want to immerse themselves into longer projects after that zipper pouch, or as a first-time bag making project. Materials include cotton fabric squares (10cm x 10cm), viscose lining, cotton webbing for the straps, and lots of fusible interfacings. The roomy and boxy bag is especially useful for carrying large documents. The clean straight lines gives it a somewhat formal look, so you could even use this at the office."
