Sometimes, you just need a bag big enough to carry your current read along for those waits (in lines, for tables, for friends). Sometimes, you need a bag big enough to get you through a weekend of beaching and sleeping over with a little bit of this and a little bit of that thrown in. Snag a tote bag or two from The Walrus & The Carpenter to carry all your goodies and necessities with you. Don't forget to tote along a nice hostess gift for your gracious hostess if you're overnighting it (it'll fit in your bag!)!
Bags are fully lined. Fabrics may be subject to availability, as I make most of these from remnants and/or vintage finds. Materials, features, and sizes noted below.
