Quilted white canvas tote

This was a quick and easy project – a tote bag perfect for my weekly trips this week to the farmer’s market.  I used a yard of white canvas and leather straps from Modern Domestic, taupe linen from my fabric stash for the lining, and I based the design on Purl Bee’s Railroad Tote.  I added stiff interfacing between the canvas and linen to give the bag more structure.  As a subtle design feature, I quilted horizontal lines, spaced approximately one inch apart, on each piece of the canvas/interfacing.
