i made two plaid totes. they both have outside straps and pockets, but it's hard to tell with such a busy print.

medium sized one:




large sized one:



on this larger one, one of the front pockets is really big and so it was sagging, so i sewed on a little snap, then that button to cover up the snap stitching.

I love your totes... I was going to try and make my first tote last night at sewing group - but forgot my directions.. okay, I am sure someone there would have walked me through it - I ended up having enough projects to keep me busy though.... I do need to make one big enough to haul my fabric to and from sewing group.. I look far too much like a bag lady when I go!


Did you use a tutorial to make them or just winged it?

Those are both very neat!  I especially like the button on the 2nd tote--it's a nice touch, even if it wasn't part of your original design. Smiley

i just sort of made it up as i went. i need to make another one though, because... well i was trying to make one for school, but the medium one i think will be too small. so i made the bigger one, but it's massive and so i think that might be awkward, haha.

and thank you both!
