I just finished a new insulated reusable shopping tote. The pattern is from Patchwork Please!, and I used canvas and quilting cottons from the Paperie collection. The webbing and drawstring was sourced from Purl Soho. I quilted a layer of Insulbright and cotton batting to the lining, and added 1 1/2 inches to the height dimension of the canvas layer. I also added an extra half inch to the width of the cover pieces so I could make a narrow hem as opposed to pinking the seams as instructed.
I thought the pattern went together easily, and it's a huge tote! I probably won't need another one this size. I'm looking forward to seeing how well this keeps food cold during the hot Dallas summers. I may eventually make a pocket insert to put a block of blue ice in and place on top of the food before closing the cover.
