New Craft Tote

Hi again everyone

I’ve had a wonderful sewing day today making a birthday gift for my good friend, Deb Fearns.  I’ve used the gorgeous Stampin’ Up! Tea for Two designer fabric for this project and I decided to make a larger craft tote than the one I made last year and I am so pleased with how it turned out.  This tote is fantastic – you can fit so much in it.  Check it out…

I found the pattern for this tote on the Gina Bean Handmade Blog by Gina Allen and she has very very generously posted a FREE tutorial which you can find here.  You will need a google account to access. Her quilts are stunning and she has stacks of free tutorials for small projects like this one that you might like to add to your project list.

I still haven’t had time to make one of these for myself but I’ve now cut out the fabric I’m going to use and I’m ready to go for another crafty day tomorrow.  It’s soooo nice being on holidays.

Happy Stitching!

Signature

NOTE:  I made one change to this pattern.  So I could make this out of one package of Stampin’ Up! fabric, I used a 1/4″ seam instead of 1/2″ seam.  I also used a non Stampin’ Up! cream fabric for the pocket linings to be sure I had enough fabric and I wanted a contrasting fabric to bring it all together.
