My mom asked me to make her a tote bag for a friend who had recently retired. Her directions were bright fabrics, needed a top zipper and an outside pocket, and pockets on the inside.

I pointedly used grey as the bag's bottom to hide dirt plus reserve the pretty center fabric to work into future projects. I also wanted to reserve it as I actually made two of these bags! They have different closures though.

These bags also boast an outside pocket big enough for keys, a cell phone and/or sun glasses. Inside it has a zippered pocket as well as a huge open pocket on the other side. Seriously, guys, that big pocket is 15" tall and the full width of the bag! I did "split" the pocket into two unequal sizes to stabilize it and make it more usable.

The other I created similar to a zippered pouch. However, I'm obviously awful at making pouches as you can see from the ends of these close-ups!
One last look!
