I’ve been waiting and waiting to finally make this beautiful tote from //Between the Lines// tutorial. Oh, and if you haven’t stumbled on Pascale’s blog yet, you’re in for a treat, she has lots of great tutorials and absolutely stunning photography.
I had gotten the denim a looong time ago and cranked it out the other night. If you want to practice some different ways to sew seams, this is a great opportunity. From a half french seam to french seams, you’ll be able to get a good feel for them all!
I wish I could have found some nice leather for the straps, but instead I used some Amy Butler Soul Blossoms. Just cut my two strap pieces 5″ wide by 26″ long and ironed/folded as you would bias tape. I even have enough denim for another bag, so you might be seeing more of these.
It was really quick to sew and I think it makes a great bag for lugging around all that mommy on the go stuff!
ps, thanks for your excitement for my new bag/tote pattern!
