A Super Tote for me!!

I finally made a Super Tote (by Noodle-head) for me!  This was the 5th one I made and I have to admit I have not tired of making this pattern, and it's true that practice makes perfect because this one came out the BEST of all of them. I also made it in record time (I believe it was less than 7 hours where the first took over 10!) I was so excited also to cross something off my 'to make' list because I purchased this fabric well over a year ago), check!  The main fabric was bought at my LQS The Cotton Cupboard, it's called Katharine's Wheel by FreeSpirit. I also found the lining and orange fabric at the same store but already forgot what they were.  The red gusset fabric was purchased at Hancock fabrics. I truly love this tote!

Here is a dark peek of the inside (sorry!), I chose to make the gathered pocket just on one side and on the other I put a simple divided pocket for my cell phone, pen and sunglasses.  I like having a variety of different pockets inside my bags/purses.

I'm going to enter this in the Sew Sweetness Purse Palooza, I hope you have something to enter too, there are some great prizes up for grabs!  You have until Nov 14 to do so here

  2. Hi Donna
    I have just started sewing and found your blog through the Threading My way linky party.
    I love this Tote. The fabric is just gorgeous.The little pocket for your phone is a great idea.

  3. I'm betting your beautiful tote will be well used, Donna. It's hard to take photos of the inside of a bag. One day I'll learn how.
