Simple scrappy tote

Well, the monthly Sewing Studio Sundays with Julie have yet to become a regular monthly event, but that didn't keep Julie from doing some sewing on her own this past weekend.

Look what she whipped up on Sunday! Another simple tote based on the tote from Lotta Jansdotter's Simple Sewing book.

This time she took samples of fabric she had purchased at Crafty Planet (and yes, you can all be jealous as she lives close enough to visit in person whenever she gets the urge to look for some great fabrics!).

Some time ago she had purchased these fabrics with the intent of stretching fabric around canvases for her kitchen decor, but choose to add other decor in the kitchen instead. That meant she had 4-1/2" by 45" strips of fabric that needed to be used.

So, ta-da! She's obviously a natural at this sewing stuff!

  1. Sewing Sundays sounds like fun. Bouncing ideas off one another and learning is a great idea.

    Nice tote!

  2. Cute bag!

    I like the idea of sewing sundays too.

    Is your bag lined?

    Have a great day!

  3. I know, it sounds like a lot of fun! I also like the totes.

  4. What a great (and pretty) way to repurpose the fabric!
