Anyway, the tote! It's perfect! When I was putting it together, I thought it might be too big, but now that I've been using it for a few weeks, it's just the right size to hold on my junk and then some.
Because I can't live without them, I added a zippered pocket to the inside in addition to the slip pocket that's in the pattern. It's perfect for my keys and iPod for my weekend trips to the library or farmer's market. No more digging at the bottom like I did in my old work tote.
I wasn't paying attention and managed to sew the back panel (well, now it's the back panel) on upside down, but I kind of like it because it looks like the moths are circling the bag.
|Not sure what the lining fabric is. I think it's Robert Kaufman, though. I won it from Kim (thanks, Kim!).|
- Added SF-101 to lining to stabilize it a bit
- Used fabric rather than webbing to make the straps
- Added a layer of batting to the straps. I meant to at 101 as well, but I forgot.
