Tutorial Alert: really want to try this tutorial for a tote bag
Post Project Update: my birdie sling bag is in constant use since I made it, and it is still looking okay, although, I can see that the handle will get dirty with use… fortunately. the bag is washable (theoretically).
New Purchases: so I’m a little obsessed lately with drapery fabric (for sewing tote bags) and assorted hardware for bags (snaps, eyelets, assorted findings). I stopped by FabricLand yesterday (for one item!) and there was a sale. sigh. 50% off EVERYTHING. 2 hours later, I was happier, and poorer.
sewing patterns were buy 1, get 2 free.
assorted hardware at half price!
really loved the gorgeous shiny embroidery thread.
now, I don’t have to sew my own handles!
this was a steal at $4/metre.
this is a light weight denim-like cotton (twill, maybe?)…
this is fully reversible, perfect for sturdy grocery bags…
