All that aside, I’ve been missing blogging! It’s made me realize how much I love just creating and then sharing it with you and hearing about how you’ve made one too, or how you can’t wait to try a new technique or pattern, or what you’re up to next. The sewing community is just so so supportive in that way and I’m enjoying every last drop!
So I dove into some WIPs and dug out this Social Tote that had been started a while back and never finished. I’ve made it sort of a goal of mine to use up my most hoarded and favorite fabrics more often, so this project was pulled with that goal in mind. I just love the challenge of this pattern. It’s funny, even though I designed it (and feel incredibly grateful that Carolyn asked me to collaborate with her), it still challenges me.
I like to follow along with the directions and it had been a while since my last, so I had to pay careful attention! I also double checked all my pieces about a hundred times or so. I was convinced I forgot to cut something out. No missing pieces, but I did happen to forget the interfacing on the handles even though it was sitting right there in front of me! Oh well, next time, right?
I’m not sure if I’m keeping this one or spreading the love. I have someone in mind for it, but I’ll let it sit on my cutting table a bit longer until I can part ways.
Anyway, hope you’re having a great start to the week! I’m so excited about fall!
Update, here’s where you can buy the pattern:
