Project

Larger Tote

What are you most proud of? I had already made the reversible tote. But after using it (essentially as a diaper bag), I realized I wanted a larger version that had specifically-sized pockets for my keys and phone. So I adjusted the pattern, I added interfacing into the lining to give it a bit more structure, and I added snaps to the pockets to secure the contents. I'm happy that I could make something specific to my needs! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Think about what you want to put in the pockets and adjust the pocket size (and number of pockets) to accommodate those items.
