I think that is what Amy Karol calls this bag in her book, Bend the Rules Sewing. I love her book and this bag is adorable. Brown velvety corduroy and bright spring green calico peaking through in the pleats. The only thing this bag is missing is a zipper or some closure of some sort, though I made it for molly's bff who has been using a library tote bag as her bag o' choice for some time now. It is a bit imperfect but the imperfections are all small. I love that it has a sturdy bottom, thanks to the rectangle of webbing sewn into the facing and covered by the lining.
