1  ***Tote bag for a little star*** in Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General by thecraftytrundler on: November 17, 2008 02:56:01 PM
 Smiley
My little 10 month old grandaughter , Aaliyah, needed a bag for her swimming costume, and towel. Her mum had been squeezing these items into her nappy (diaper) bag, so I decided to make her a little tote bag of her own.
I started at about 7.30 one evening, and didn't get to bed until I finished it!



Its made from a pink starry Cath Kidston fabric, is lined, and has a little calico pocket on it, with Aaliyah's name chain stitched on it,  in pastel colours. I also found some little satin applique stars, and I thought they'd be ideal with the starry fabric. I also had some white bias binding with pink hearts on it, so added it as a border around the top.
I was pleased with the outcome, mum likes it too. When the little one gets older, she can use it as a book bag.  Cheesy

Hi Bouncyflea!
I posted a reply to your great tutorial on 5/11/08, (or 11/5/08). At that time I had made the bag, but didn't know how to post pics. Well, now I do , and here is my Cath Kidston posy version of it

-

I wanted to use some of the CK corduroy fabric, as it's hard wearing, and would give the bag body. I needed some plain brown cord for the yoke, but hadn't any, so I cut up a pair of old synthetic brown suede look trousers, to do this. This has worked well, after I interfaced it to make it thicker. The handles are corduroy with brown webbing for extra strength. The bag is a zipped version , with a zipped pocket inside, sewn on the lining.
Thanks again for the tute, I enjoyed making it!! Cheesy

This great bag gave me ideas and inspiration!  Shocked
I needed a weekend bag for trips away to my bf's etc to carry the essentials for a few days away. All the bags I have, or have made were too small for this purpose, and plastic carrier bags look pretty awful. Sad  I saw this great bag, and started to attack my fabric stash. The outer fabric is a vintage 80's Laura Ashley quilted cotton, called Nutmeg, & the patchwork strip panel is mainly Cath Kidston cottons with calico & gingham, that I quilted with calico & wadding , so it was the same thickness as the outer fabric.
Like csi princess's version, I added ties to the sides, and to make my bag more roomy, I added a gusset of about 6-7 cm all round with a zip in the top.Also not to forget a pocket on the inside , so I do't have to search at the bottom of the bag for small items.
I did break a few needles in the process..... but hey!!!! It's all worth it in the end!
Hope you like it!  Thank you csi princess for inspiration!!! Wink

I have posted on Craftster, for a little while now, but haven't worked out how to post pics on here yet. So this evening, after 3+ hours, I think I have finally worked it out.
I found a great pattern in a book for a lined, zip top make-up bag, and had to make one for myself. As they were relatively easy to make and looked good, I have made about 7 more!! Have given 3 as presents,and everyone loves them too. I used Cath Kidston scraps for 3 of them. and the leopard skin one is a present for my animal print mad friend who's birthday is this weekend! I changed the pattern to make them slightly larger, and here are the results-
