I saw this tote online for $145
http://www.hableconstruction.com/shop/images/basket_freesiapoppy.P.jpg

So I thought I'd make my own:


Then I thought I'd make a simple Tutorial for it, I hope it's easy enough to understand  Smiley


oh and the pattern isn't exactly what i used, so i'm not sure if it'll work exactly like that. but it looks close to the one i made.

hey that's an interesting type of bag. maybe someone send an action photo at some point, cos i'd really like to know what they look like when they are carried or rather how to carry those.
really good tutorial tho! thanks

cute purse.  You did a great job!  I've made some hobo bags with the straps tied at the top, but I have such a hard time sewing on the bottom.  I usually end up with the seam ripper because I get something bunched up or overlapped.   I don't know exactly how to describe.  I will try this version.

thanks.  catdaddytn

The original was $145?!?  You did a great job!  There are so many talented people on Craftster.  Very cute.  I'd like an action shot as well.  How a bag hangs is always the deciding factor for me.
You should be proud of yourself!

I'm very into Britney Spears' early work, before she sold out, so mostly her, um, finger painting and macaroni art.

let me see what it looks like.


and when i have a chance i will definately take an action shot, i've just been so busy lately, i've just graduated from college, had a birthday and now my brother is about to graduate from high school so much stuff to do. and this guy i know just pointed out tome that it is reversable, i'm artistic, but i never noticed that.

I think that you carry it by the handle or pop it under your arm. If you had books or big stuff in there though, and they almost went to the top of the handle then you can't carry it under your arm, can you?

I used a pretty heavy one, it helps to keep the handle up

Wow, you are so creative.  I can never just see something and then make it myself.  I can sure try though.  Thank you for the tutorial.
