This is my first post... I just had to share my diy tote bags from SNB! They were my first "real" sewing projects, and I'm really pleased with the way they turned out. I didn't have too much trouble with them... the patches were a little tricky to sew b/c I must not have been holding them down well, and when I got to the end, I had a wrinkle, so I had to go back and do the last two sides again.
The fabrics are from Jo-Ann, I found the Hawaii pic online, and the one on the blue bag, which you can't see very well, is a vintage French postcard that I scanned.
