Just finished this tote bag. It is big enough to carry a medium size dog or two cats. I purchased a packet of fabric last summer that was a fund raiser for ovarian cancer research. My mother died of ovarian cancer. I had to buy this fabric. I did not know what I was going to do with it until this past week. We had our monthly quilt guild meeting with a "tote bag" demonstration. This was perfect. I used up 99% of the fabric and now I have this great bag.
