Tote bag

So I tried my hand at my first solo sewing job. I think it's fair to say, this is going to take more patience and practice than I'd first anticipated!

I'm afraid I tend to err on the side of laziness for this type of project. I started it committed to measuring it all out and carefully cutting the fabric. Then I couldn't find a ruler. Or a pencil to mark along the fabric.

Note to self: "that looks about right" will NEVER be straight.


  1. I had no idea you made this! I thought it was a lovely bag when I saw it last time I was over but I just assumed you'd bought it. So cute that it's his book bag too :). Good work Mama!

  2. Aww thanks Eve, that's really good of you.
