This canvas totes bag is the right accessory to keep up with the current trend for small bags, cross body wallets, and small backpacks. I made this bag so it would be small to carry with the option of having it cross over the body. There's enough room for a pair of sunglasses, phone, keys, money, and a few business cards. You can make it with very little fabric, so it becomes the perfect project to use your fabric scraps.
I had a hard time finding springtime colors for the small tote bag, so I decided to go with upholstery fabric. The print is woven, and it makes a great candidate for a bag without fusible or sew-in interfacing.
