The Art Student Tote is loaded with pockets and is the most versatile bag pattern I've designed yet! Both full size options give you and organized space whether you're headed to painting 101, the quilt guild, an estate sale, or on the road with the family. The extension panel in option B increases the tote height to 24" but drops out of the way when you don't need it. And the slim option provides just as much style for days that are a bit lighter weight.
Finished Dimensions by Option: Option A & B are 20"w x 17.5"h x 4"d Option C is 13.5"w x 17"h (excluding straps)
Materials Needed: Mid-weight woven cottons, home decor cottons, or velveteens are perfectly fabulous for the outer panels, straps, and outer pockets of this bag. You may want a lighter weight material for thelining panels, inner pockets, and extension panels. Fabric Requirements: Option A (Full Size Tote): 1-1/4 yds of outer fabric 3/4 yd of contrast fabric 2-1/4 yds of lining fabric
Option B (Full Size Tote with Extension Panel): 1-1/4 yds of outer fabric 3/4 yd of contrast fabric 3-1/4 yds of lining fabric
Option C (Slim Tote with Divider): 1 yd of outer fabric 3/4 yd of contrast fabric 1-1/4 yds of lining fabric
