Tote Bag

A friend of mine asked me a while ago if I would make a custom order for her - a tote bag/diaper bag/carry everything kinda bag.  I said yes, although I had never made one before and wasn't quite sure what I was going to do.  

After lots of research and planning and measuring, I was ready to begin!  She purchased the fabric so that eliminated a huge amount of my time fabric shopping.  I love fabric so much that it takes me forever to narrow it down to one or two choices.

Basically, I used my snack bag pattern, enlarged it and added a few embellishments - straps, interfacing, two fabrics and pockets on the inside.  I love how it turned it!  It's a great tote bag that can be used for anything and everything!

I have decided to make some more and add them to my shop.  I just have to choose some fabric, and you now know that that can take awhile!

If Little L can't sell them in her pajamas with bed head, who can?!


  1. I absolutely love my bag, Corry. It's the right size to hold everything and it's so pretty. I've been out with it and have had a few people comment on how nice it is. Thanks again for sewing it for me! The only problem is that Amelia thinks it's beautiful, too, and wants to share. Would you consider making a little one for her - a snack bag with purseish handles? :)


    1. I'm so glad you love it - and Amelia too! It would be too cute for her to have a miniature one, so I must make her one! I have to say, Lily loved it as well. I think I'll be making several mini totes!
