A New Tote for this Mama

Today I am 40 weeks, 1 day. Overdue. Overdue also to blog something. That baby being late is not so bad after all, because I crossed more projects off my to-sew-list than I thought. And sneaked some new ones in, too. Like this happy summer tote. It makes me smile every time I look at it: a new bag, stripes, red, yellow, turquoise.

Summer Tote

It's made from the leftovers of IKEA Vitaminer cotton fabric that I bought for the kid's room curtains (not that I've made curtains yet, I just cut the fabric so I would have leftovers to make this bag...) Oh and YES, I felt the need for a new TOTE arise after checking out Dana's series on TOTE bags.

and the inside...lined and with pockets. (Technically "reversible" but who would want to hide the stripes?)

I added a pocket on the outside, too.

It's boxed out.

orange kisses turquoise? Yes. please!.


  1. This tote is super cute! I love the bright colors! How are you doing?

    1. Hi, the boy is here - one week old already! I am doing well. I'll have to post some welcome post, just being to busy gazing on my boy all day long... haven't even sent proper pictures to the family yet.
