Project

Foldover Tote

Variations from pattern/class: I opted to use fusible fleece interfacing to give added body to the bag. I also used Soft & Stable inside the handles for added cushioning and form. When making the outer pockets I used the inside handle as a guide to make those pockets a bit wider. This was a very fun project to make. Quick, easy, great size bag and good handle length!

Hi Nicky, Beautiful tote! I am getting ready to sew my very first project/tote. I absolutely love the fabric you used. Do you recall the name of the fabric or manufacturer and where you purchased it? Thanks, Sandy
Nicki Hanko answered:
Thank you! It’s a Tim Holtz fabric from JoAnn’s Fabrics. I’ll take a look at my scraps and see if I can find any further information on the selvage.
