Tote Practice

I cut up some fabric to test sew a tote. I've never sewn one before (unless you count the girls camp one summer when we had to sew our own dish holder tote/bag and puff paint our names on).

I specifically bought this fabric for testing bags a while ago and also happen to have some thrifted thick brown cotton for the bottom part. Not sure if I'll like the color combo at all. And no, I don't know exactly why I'd sew up a whole project in colors I probably won't like. Maybe it's because I'm trying to use my stash this year rather than purchase.  In any case, at least I'll have one tote under my belt, no puff paint this time.

  5. I really like your fabric - it has a bit of an Orla Kiely feel about it and will look lovely used in a tote.
