This tote bag is really big and would hold heaps of stuff. It measures 45cm wide and 40cm high and is padded between the lining and fabric to give extra protection to your things. I have made a pyramid purse from the contrast fabric which can be hung inside the bag from a vintage button which is sewn to the lining. The lining is brown cotton and there is a zippered pocket in the lining too. On both sides, on one of the handles I've also sewn on a vintage button. This bag would be great to take on a picnic or to a market or anywhere you need to carry a lot of stuff.
