Saturday’s Sewing Efforts

As promised, I’m posting some photographs of the tote bag I made on Saturday, using my newly acquired Ikea fabric.

The basic pattern that I used came from a tutorial by Colorfool.  I love this method as it requires no handsewing whatsoever!!  My final product was about 12 inches wide and 14 inches tall.  I really like the size; it’s not too small nor too big.

I also added a simple pocket to the front panel:

I’m in love with the tote, even though I haven’t used it yet…  The sizing is good and the colors are fun and interesting.  I think that I’m going to have to make some more soon.
