Sewing another tote was very fast after having made a summer tote already.
But choose a proper color for the addition fabric was a funny task that took me more than one hour.
I have tried even checked fabric.
Finally I decided on dark blue. I have followed all the steps except creating handles.
Here I made them using fabric loops and inserted the stripe into the loop.
Then stitched both ends together.
Such way you have a short handle (doubled) and a long one (single)
To fix them I have stitched velcro tape.
