Sew4Home shows how to make a pocketed tote bag in three sizes. These totes are fully lined, with boxed corners and a stiff insert at the bottom to help it keep its shape. Pockets across the front and back will hold your smaller items. They suggest using them to package special gifts, where the bag the gift is presented in becomes a gift in and of itself. Go to Sew4Home for the how-to.
