Sister Has a Brand New Bag

Remember when I said the only thing I had to get done this weekend was some pillowcases? Yeah…

I couldn’t very well start pillowcases when I still had a birthday tote hanging over my head. So, without further ado, my sister’s much belated birthday tote:

Isn’t it grand? Well, in the light of day the lining looks a bit puckered and the pic is all kinds of weird colors just to make my grass look lifelike, but you get the idea.

This is a repeat of my first sewing project – Crafty Planet’s Beginning Tote. I would love to share the pattern with you, but Crafty Planet is a small, locally owned business and I believe they would prefer to sell it. The cost of the pattern is two dollars, but you get it for free if you take their tote sewing class. It’s fun. You should tote-ally do it!

My sister picked out the fabric and I must say – it’s stunning in real life. Like her, the tote appears modern and sedate on the outside. But the inside? A riot of color, complex pattern and beauty like you wouldn’t believe.

Happy Birthday, Sisterpoke (rhymes with cow poke). I love you more than cheese!

  1. well I love this tote and would love to make it but the pattern isn’t on the website where I can even buy it. I don’t see a class for it also.
