I made this as a fishing bag. I use it every time we go fishing. It is big enough for all of our drinks, tackle and worms. I was amazed at how easy it became to take everything we needed on our trips. Thanks for such a good pattern!

Very good resource on how to attach a drawstring top to a tote bag. Notethe size of the bag in the tutorial is very small. I made it a little larger and could have gone even bigger to a grocery tote size. I will reuse the construction steps to add drawstring tops to other patterns though.
