We made up new kits for our most popular bag tutorial of all time using fabric from the fabulous Tim Holtz. His Worn Croc line makes the best bag bottoms and handles because it gives you a high end look with a quilting cotton price.
The Tourist Tote by Sew Many Creations has raked in more than 175,000 views since we first published it and is still in our top 10 videos watched every month years after its release!
The pattern is super easy to follow with just six pieces and is a perfect beginner bag for new or aspiring bag ladies. The first time I made it, I had it completed in four hours including cutting and fusing the interfacing and used it the next day.
I use my Tourist Tote almost every day because it hold literally everything. Laptop, nearly complete knitting project, wallet, keys, diapers, random junk my kids give me. It is my go-to bag whenever I need to bring a lot of stuff.
