Cute Tote Bags

I am loving my new sewing machine! That husband of mine spoils me rotten. Since getting it on Saturday, I've taken in and hemmed a pair of pants, finished a pair of pajama shorts I had started a few summers ago using my Mom's sewing machine, and made two little bags using this tote tutorial. I am so pleased with how the totes turned out. They are just the right size for wallet, cell phone, keys, and whatever other little things you need to carry with you.

How cute is that? Don't you just want one?

A fat quarter is just the right amount of fabric for one outside color or for two linings, so the mixing and matching is fun but the fabric costs are low. They are so easy to make! I'm sure I'll be making several more... and I bet these are just the sort of thing little girls would love, so if you have children in your life, these are a great little project.

  1. Hey Sarah! I really love your new blog look! Also, your totes are super cute - I really like the pink and brown one. :) Thanks so much for always including links to recipes and sewing stuff - I like to take notes as I learn how to be a homemaker, and it's great to have you point to where you learn things.
