A friend of mine asked me to make her some totes for her girls. She wanted them a little larger then the monogrammed totes I usually make. I found a pattern in the same book that Liberty used for her laptop bag. It is actually the same pattern, but I didn't add the flap or make the handles the same. Here are the measurements of each of the pieces I used.
Front and back panel: 14 inches (width) by 13 inches (height)
Side pieces - 5 inches x 13 inches (x2)
Bottom piece - 5 inches x 14 inches
The handles are 6 inches by 22 inches (x2)
The ruffle is 2 1/2 inches by 44 inches (x2)
The pocket is 9 inches x 9 inches.
Here are some close-ups of the pocket and ruffle.
