It’s a great pattern that I highly recommend. The clever construction even allows it to be completely reversible! I’m using at a purse (blue side out), I don’t really see it as a shopping tote. The only modification is that I changed the size of the pockets to better fit my use – I like a smaller pocket to hold my cell phone.
BTW, Thanks for all the kind words on my last entry – I’m feeling much better, and planning the next podcast.
