Tinker Tote Bag

Project Description

What are you most proud of? The zippered pocket. I have not seen a bag pattern with a zippered pocket before. Tara made it easy, and I do feel smarter. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Watch the videos first and go step by step. Don't rush the binding, it's a pain in the neck but you really need to do it right. I had to rip out some of mine and start over, but I'm glad I did.

What you will need

  • A mix of cotton scraps with a dog theme.

Q&A with QueenieDogsMom

Meredith K asked:
So cute! Thanks for the tip regarding the binding! Did you make yours smaller?
QueenieDogsMom answered:
Yes, I just took 2 inches off the side seam and 1 inch off the handle. I'm making a bigger one with my dog prints for my local shelters "spay-ghetti" dinner.
