A while back my sister asked me to make a new gym bag for her. She thought a simple tote would work fine. I already had some Ikea fabric on hand that I purchased for another project, but never used. I thought it would be fun try the Reversible Everyday Shopper tote from the Amy Butler Style Stitches bag book.
Now, I knew this bag would be large, but it was comically huge when I started putting it together. I'm not sure this will work for a gym bag for my sister unless she is toting small children. We might have to rework the design. The pattern was relatively easy to follow, although it did use a mile of interfacing like all Amy Butler bags. I'm happy with the results despite the fact that it is ginormous. It would be a perfect bag to take to the farmers' market.
