InstructionsI didn't use a pattern. Tote bags are easy to make. Lining is fairly straight forward. BUT - I added a zip.
Had a few problems, lots of unpicking but I got there in the end.
Type of item: Accessory
Style: Preppy, Cute, Casual, Retro / Vintage, Whimsical, Mod, Funky, Classic, Rock / Punk
I used black drill, a cotton lining, a jacket zip and a printable fabric sheet for the photo
What was your inspiration?
A friend's daughter's 21st. I wanted to make something special - this is definitely a one off!
What are you most proud of?
Getting it right! Unpicked quite a lot, the zip was tricky, had to walk away a few times. Could easily have left it without the zip but if it is used for evening, I would like to think personal items are safer with the zip.
I am proud of the whole thing. The photo, The message inside, It looks great, I am very pleased with it.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Persevere!!! No this was easy - except for the zip. But I have sewn it in about four times today and I think I now know what I am doing.
