i am so proud of this bag! until now i havent really gone beyond just a simple tote but my husbands aunt asked me to make her a large tote with a divider in the middle, making two seperate sections. and i figured it out! yeah!!

thanks for looking!



**TUTORIAL**

hey guys...i just wanted to let you know this and another project i want to do tutorials on but we found out we are moving *very soon*. its just across town but a lot needs to be organized and what not.

as soon as we get settled i will have more room to make a tutorial. i plan to do them w/ pictures but i can try to explain how i did the divider.

i made the outside same as any other bag with sides and bottom.

then for the inside i cut:

2 large pieces same size as outside front and back
2 side pieces same size as 2 outside side pieces
2 more pieces the same *length* as the outside but i cut the height down about 4 or 5 inches.
1 bottom piece same side as outside

take those two last pieces first. i sewed interfacing to one of them. pinned the tops together *right* sides together and made a seam.

then i flipped it to *wrong* sides together and ironed. sewed again along the top seam.

then i took the 2 side pieces i cut and cut them each in half. i also cut the bottom piece in half.

then i constructed the inside in this order:

1 large piece:
1 half side piece on each side, then one bottom piece.

then i take the divider piece i added the interfacing to and sew that to the side pieces i just sewed to the first piece. does that make sense? then i sew the already attached bottomed piece to the divider and sew up the small bottom edges.

then to the other half of the divider piece i sew the other 2 side pieces and bottom piece. then sew the other larger piece to that. i leave a seam along the bottom edge open to turn.

then i finish the bag as normal. outer and lining right sides together, sew along the top, flip etc.

does that make sense? prob not.

i will do one with pictures after we move. i promise Smiley

I love the fabric, it's very bright and fun!

Is the divider just two pieces of fabric or does it have something in the middle?
