Everything Tote For Me
I just finished making a new bag as an early birthday present to myself. I used the Everything Tote pattern from Weekend Sewing. The description in the book reads, "This bag is perfect for weekends and weekdays, with an expanding shape that can hold an unexpectedly large cache of paperwork, groceries, workout gear, books, etc." And that is exactly what drew me to this pattern in particular. I tried it out today & ended up throwing in a good stack of library books in addition to my regular stuff (wallet, diaper/wipes, sippy cup & snacks). They fit in comfortably & I still had room for more!
The rosettes were made following this tutorial from Made by the Mama Monster. There will definitely be more frayed rosettes in my life. I'm sure of it. Very easy & super cute.
Hooray for something new that's just for me. I'm a happy girl.
