I've been wanting to make myself a tote bag forever... But I had never made a bag before and a lot of the tutorials I found in blogland just seemed too complicated for me so I kept searching. Well... I'm sitting at the cottage on Saturday, sipping a coffee and just looking around when I found the PERFECT tutorial for a tote bag on FairyFace Designs. The tutorial is actually from Leanne who was guest-blogging over at FairyFace Designs.
All you need is 18 charm squares and some lining fabric. So I chose Blueberry Crumb Cake by Blackbird Designs for Moda and got to work.
A couple of hours later, I had my very first bag:
And I love it! I liked it so much and it was so easy to make that I've decided to make a bunch of them for Mother's Day this year. It's perfect for books, knitting supplies, shoes, lunches, whatever! I'm super excited about this tote bag! :-)
So excited in fact that I decided to link up at Happy Quilting for T.N.T. Thursday!
And what have you tried this week?
