Searching for the Perfect Tote Bag

I don't think I'm obsessive (this is my 4th try) but I am trying to develop the perfect tote bag for my knitting. I have been using some of the  large pile of made fabric as I keep trying different construction options. Needs to be large enough, but not too big, have good pocket structure and a top zipper. Close but not quite. I'm going to keep trying!!!

Update: I really do like this bag, but the zipper is just not the way I want it to be. There are a lot of tote bag tutorials and patterns around, but none of them are really good at zippers. If I get this figured out maybe I'll write my own directions.

Love that bag! I'm just beginning to dabble in made fabric and enjoy the adventure very much. Go wiht the ocd - under control, it can be useful :0). Well done, be proud!! :0)

I really like your bag! I share your desire for the perfect bag! Mine are either way too big or just a bit too small. :-)

Lovely bag, looks good with the made fabric and black. I agree with you - zips in bags are sometimes (always?) a problem.

Have made dozens of not-quite-perfect tote bags but won't give up till I get it right! I eagerly await your zipper tutorial....
