|Gingham inner pocket|
|Silver and blue contrasting threads|
I seldom carry a purse, preferring to jam my pockets or my boyfriend's pockets. ;) However, whether you’re a lad or a lass, sometimes you need somewhere to put your lunch, big DSLR, and/or library books, darnit.
I’ve wanted to make a tote for a long time, and this one took an entire day plus breaks because I was meticulous about each step. Unfortunately, I normally rush through sewing projects, which means lots of mistakes, but plenty of learning opportunities, riiiight? As careful as I was, it still contains little flaws but I am very much at peace with imperfection.
Gingham scrap fabric
This thread (highly recommended; such great quality)
Pattern: My own
Due to lack of planning, I now have leftover fabric. Oh well, it's always good to have fabric scraps around. One can make something else useful, like a wallet?
