This pattern is called Wide-Mouth Tote. I don't see it on the Cool Cottons website, but you can get it from Connecting Threads.
|It's really hard to photograph a tote bag.|
At Sewtopia, there was a box where you could leave bits of fabric that you didn't want. I found two blocks in the box and thought they would be good to test out my new pattern. I added a border around the 12.5-inch blocks to increase the size. And then I was gifted the lilac fabric.
I found the beige batik for the casing in my stash. The pattern is fairly easy, but I found a few spots where I could have used a bit more information. And then I mis-read a step early on and didn't discover my error until the end. But I was able to correct it without too much difficulty.
I wouldn't use a block again to make this pattern beause it doesn't end up being very visible. The bag is reversible so you could have fun with choosing fabrics. The bag is quite roomy, and it doesn't take long to make.
What did you make this week?
