Homeward Bound makes a great shopping or travel tote
This video is an introduction to Homeward Bound from the video class for the bag at Make Bags With Brenda. This pattern is also available in a paper version.
Homeward Bound travel tote may be made with panels like the Discover Canada line of fabric shown
Make your bag uniquely Canadian by using Discover Canada fabric from Robert Kaufman, or choose regular yardage to create a minimalist one-fabric look on the front and back.
Nostalgic panels, one hiding a large pocket, complement this softly structured bag with decorative rings, a relaxed side silhouette, protective bag feet and interior slip pockets. The design is finished with a secure, zipped closure.
Homeward Bound’s sister pattern, the Uptown Girl Tote, is an American version of the same bag that may be made with the Explore America fabric collection, also from Robert Kaufman.

A comment from Jocelyne Sarault
“I used all my material and I’m ready to go walking and impress the other walkers with my new bag! The front is Ottawa where I live and the back is Whitehorse, a city I visted a few years back on our trip to the Yukon.”
