This linen Belted Tote bag has been finished for months now and waiting patiently for spring/summer to arrive.
Here in Portland summer may or may not arrive this year. Today it is 54 degrees, raining and dreary. But it is time for a new bag, and a simple tote bag is a nice option for the summer.
I used this bag last weekend and found it quite useful. It was comfortable to carry and it was nice that it held my wallet/keys/phone with room left over for a few other things I picked up while out and about.
This is a grey pinstripe linen I found at Joann's last summer. It is a thin linen and probably wouldn't last long as clothing, but with an extra layer of fabric backing it makes a sweet tote bag. A double square bow has been added to the "belt".
