Weekender Tote Pattern Finished

At last I have finished the Weekender Tote Sewalong. The official finishing date was actually yesterday but I never seem to get things done on time so at least its only 1 day late - sorry Leah!

These were my fabric choices Daisy Ditty (the floral), Iron works (the Lime), both by Michael Miller, and the micro dots - whoops I can't remember the designer name sorry!

This was the scary bit!  I was really nervous about cutting so much fabric away so I checked and rechecked,  pinned and repinned and then took the plunge - phew it was right, panic over!

This is the outside of the bag sewn together and waiting for the lining to be added.

I made a slight change to the pocket on the inside.  As I was using the same fabric for the lining and the pocket I thought I would add some of the lime green fabric to the top of the pocket - I think It works and it just breaks up the black on the inside.

This is my finished bag!  I love it and I think I would definitely sew this bag again.  The instructions are very clear and the photographs are especially helpful if you are a more visual person like myself.  This bag has quite a zesty feel to it and I can't wait to use it.

Thank you to
Leah of Sew Spoiled for this great pattern and the chance to join other sewers from around the world.

Just for you . . . said...

I love it Stephanie, the fabric choices and colours are gorgeous . . . I think I may need a little more practise before attempting this bag though!

Your bag is great. Love the fabrics you chose. I will know where to look if I want to do something like this in the future.
Well done.
