It has been a busy couple of weeks around here both at home and at work. Unfortunately I have not had a chance to do much sewing. I was able to finish sewing a tote bag that I started back in June and never finished. I made it for a gift and had a hard time letting it go.
I used the Emily Bag pattern by I Think Sew. I love her patterns. They are very well written and she has a nice variety of bags, clutches and cloth shoes. This was my first time making this bag and like her other patterns I found the instructions easy to follow.
The bag itself is a nice large size.
It has a snap closure and interior pockets.
I used upholstery fabric for the exterior and a light blue for the interior. For the straps I used some scrap polka dot denim I had on hand.
I hope my busy schedule lightens up soon because I am really itching to do some sewing.
I hope everyone had a great weekend.
