In today’s post I’d like to share my latest tote bag
This one was inspired by the shopper tutorial in Kate Haxell’s book Me and My Sewing Machine. Her design was for a shopper, I just fiddled with the measurements to create a smaller version. This was made from off cuts of fabric 🙂 I really like the contrast fabric just inside the top, it makes for a really neat finish.
My next challenge is to get to grips with button holes so I can start to add some form of closures to the bags. I’ve been reading up with Lisa Lam’s Bag Making Bible book, need a lot more practice but I managed my first pocket the other day! I also cut some zips out of my old clothes so I can try to get to grips with zips!!!! Yikes!!!!! Definately outside my comfort zone now!!!
Got some great paper craft tutorials planned for the next couple of months. Hope to get some videos done too, if the light is good enough!
Do let me know what you think of my bag 🙂
Best wishes and thanks for reading see you soon
