    Thanks for the post. I am not a bag maker but am going to try this tote. A question for those of you who do do bags. Is there a way to reinforce the straps? Maybe enclose some interfacing. I can see how batting would be too thick cause the straps are sewn onto the bag.

    I put a piece of 987F that runs the length and width of the strap when I do totes. Makes for a nice padded handle. Some people put webbing inside. I recently started doing this so the straps don't wear at the spots they go thru the hardware. I'm liking it.

    Thanks for asking Marta, I was wondering the same thing.

    And thank you Bubba for the recommendation.

    I too like this tote, and may give it a shot.

    Yes, interfacing. And Nancy's Notions has some good tutorials on bag making, and she puts interfacing in the straps.
