Rugged Tote Pattern
by Cheryl Weiderspahn
of Homestead Specialities
These "Rug"-get (get it?) totes are easy to make, washable and will wear like iron.
Take full advantage of the fringed ends and finished edges. Casual, sensible and practical; these totes can "step" into the role as diaper bag, overnighter, quilt class tote, gym bag, beach bag, or laptop bag. You can even make the side seams open up for the beach or a picnic!
So "step on it" and make one soon! (Just make sure you don't choose a rug so large that your new tote needs its own zip code!)
