241 Tote bag

This evening I have been busy making this adorable tote bag.  I have not made a lot of bags (this is my fourth), and I have to say it is the easiest bag I have ever made.

 The bag comes in two versions, the one I have made (easier option) with side pockets, and the alternate pattern with zip pockets.

I spotted the pattern on Angela from Fussy Cuts blog, she made both versions of the bag, check out her post on this here  and you can purchase the pattern from here 

I used saffron Craig fabric for the body of the bag, two prints, Elk landscape and geese bubbles as I think they compliment each other nicely.  It has two side  pockets and one internal pocket.  I have to purchase a little magnetic clasp for the bag so I have not stitched the closure up on the lining yet.  
This is the first tick off my white rabbit list, but I love it so much I am sure to make more than one, maybe I will try one with zips next.
