My Daytripper Totebag

I've been picking away at this tote bag project in the past week.  I hadn't made this pattern before but I took a deep breath and decided to use some of my precious batiks for this project. 

Normally I would make a prototype and use stash fabrics that I would be ok with losing, if I didn't like how the bag turned out.  But no problem here...  I love howthis daytripper bag turned out.  The scooped full size pocket on the front is what caught my eye and it's a really good size.   

The pattern comes from "The Quilt Magazine's" April 2010 issue.   

I think this is going to be my new favorite tote bag bag pattern.  Do you have a favorite tote bag pattern?
