Look what I made today :)


I made this tote today. I found a cute little site that had instructions to a tote.I did do some things a little different b/c as we all know, you tend to find ways of doing things that make it easier for YOU. That's what happened when I got to the straps. The instructions say to do two strips of fabric measuring 2" in width. Well after doing one of these and not liking how it turned out, I did a strip that measured 4" and then folded it over and sewed the other part. THEN I turned it right side out and found it much easier this way!!!!! woohoo. I was so excited when I "came up" w/this idea lol. Really, this project doesn't take long at all and it doesn't take much fabric. I will be making another one of these soon for my aunt....in owl material since she loves them :)

Tote instructions here

I want to also do a Scooby Doo one to carry Aiden's coloring books and stuff in for when we go out.

Tell me what you think!
