A simple free bag pattern & tutorial for you today, of a bag shape that you’ll love. Easy to make and utterly useful, this tote bag fits 2 big baguettes breads. Great to take on vacation to France. However, if you prefer to stalk around town with it, it is equally great to store your knitting project, with room for your water bottle and a snack, being so tall and slender. Great for a lunch break in the park. And, handy to have when grocery shopping.
Tall Tote Bag
I like this tote bag’s shape, don’t you? It has a lovely square bottom and long handles, whose drop just fits over your shoulder without the overall bag length becoming too long.

Tote Bag Fabrics
Secret to success for this one is to choose a pretty fabric which pattern supports the bag’s shape, like these meandering tropical flowers here. Or how about this happy bubbles fabric (below) with a striped lining?
Tip: Buy some extra for some fun garden pillows, and some trim around your bath towels and perhaps a little table cloth for your kitchen table.
