This pattern is awesome. Instructions are clear and easy to follow. Lots of photos included. The tote that I made turned out perfect. I used canvas as a sew in interfacing, AND, I also used interefacing on the two exterior pieces. This made the bag even more sturdy, along with the plastic canvas insert used in the bottom of the bag. Absolutely loved how easily this project came together!
