I spent my rainy Thursday afternoon blowing off all my responsibilities to sew Lotta Jansdotter's "All Day Tote." It's a little floppy for such a big bag. I'm convinced they must have stuffed it tight to get it ready for the book's photo shoot. Usually bags that size have some kind of plastic web to reinforce the bottom so it will stand up.
And anyway, I like the bag. Moda's "Urban Chix" fabric works well on the inside and I think you could argue that it could be reversible. There is a pocket for a thermos, a slot for magazines, and plenty of room for knitting or library books. I just may keep it for my commute to the art studio.
