I would have liked for it to be a little more rigid. I suppose I could add some sort of stabilizer to the inside to make it more rigid, but at this point ripping it apart and sewing it back together again just isn't appealing to me. Call me crazy.
I have to say that I am really in love with the fabric. I picked it up sometime last year at The Will. That's my new nickname for Goodwill, which I hope demonstrates my incredible fondness for it. I like to say something like..."yup, I love it. I picked it up at The Will (pronounced - The wheel!) Ahh yes, The Will, where all of my favorite fabrics come from. The fabric shack, I love. The Will, I love even more.
Back to the garden tote. I sure like it. Owen thinks it's a great place for his woodworking tools. This explains why I keep finding the gardening tools strewn liberally throughout the house, the porch and the yard. So, it's possible I will have a second attempt at a gardening tote every bit as rigid and sturdy as I think one ought to be while this one continues to do its job housing hammers, drills, screws and nails.
