This book tote gets its sturdiness from medium-to-heavy linen fabric. The lining, the handles, and the top and bottom panels use the linen, while the center panels are a perfect place to showcase a more decorative, special fabric.
You need less than a fat quarter of your special fabric, which makes it easier to feature some of the more expensive fabrics available (Liberty Lawn or custom Spoonflower designs, for example), or you can use the very last bits of a favorite print that you’ve had socked away for a special occasion.
Tools and Materials
- 1 yard of medium-to-heavy weight solid linen
- 1 fat quarter (or enough to cut two 9″x11″ pieces) of a cotton print fabric
- yard stick
- sewing machine
- thread to coordinate with linen
