Mini Tinker tote

Project Description

What are you most proud of? It's completed and came out lovely! Love the color scheme and red pokadot binding. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time especially with the binding. Mix it up and let the tote create its design. Watch the videos hhee ask me how I know- thought i knew lol! And mostly have fun!!! Remember when you change the size think about the other pieces and how it works- should've shortened the inside pocket (not zipper one) and made it longer (deeper) to hold things better now that I've used it a bit. Still loving and working on another :)

What you will need

  • I used various scraps from my stash and stash :). Fabulous stash busting too :)

Q&A with linynp

Meredith K asked:
I absolutely LOVE your t.t.! The inside is fabulous!!! As are the polka dots & the exterior colors! What did you use for your base fabric? I love the visual texture of it! Also what % down in scale did you go, & other than the interior pocket you mentioned are you happy with the size? Awesome job!! Love the advice of letting the bag design itself!
linynp answered:
I went down to 75%. But should've kept the original length. It's awesome!
Meredith K asked:
Oh by base fabric I mean the fabric at the bottom of your tote, the darker black or navy with white.
linynp answered:
Thanks!! Love my Tt!! I can't recall the name but something like painter sketch I love it!! I scaled it to 75% and now having used it for a while there's only one alteration I'd make. I'd add like 4-6 inches in length it's a bit shallow for me so I'm going to have fun and make another!!
