New tote bag

Sewing fun projects is addicting!!  There are so many cool tutorials out there in the big wide world of bloggers. I came across this one and had to try it.  I used fabrics from my stash but had to go out to buy the key rings.  This is a really cool bag.  I can see it being great for day trips out with the kids or instead of a diaper bag.  Problem is, I don't want to load it up yet because I don't want it to get all dirty from carrying it around everywhere! LOL  (Anyone else have a hard time using new things???)

Anyhow, here's my cool new tote bag. 

I couldn't figure out how to get a good photo of the inside. But notice all the neat pocket space?  There are several spots in there...on the side you can't see, there's room for a magazine or other large item. On the other side, there is a pocket for sunglasses, a couple of book sized items and pens.  There's even a keychain holder in there! I told you this was a fun bag. :)

I have stayed up way past my bedtime for several nights now so I must head off to bed. :) Someone please remind me to go to bed early tomorrow. LOL (Oh, and I didn't make the bag tonight, it was a couple of nights ago...tonight I stayed up baking breads, muffins, etc. to stock the freezer since we are having some cooler weather. Anyhow...good night!)
Happy sewing!


  1. Hi Stacey,
    Your bag turned out great! I love your fabric choices. Have you considered using Scotchguard spray to protect your bags? It may help keep your bag clean a little longer.
    Sew long,

  2. Adorable fabric and bag! Life is short.....use the bag! You can always make another, ;-)

  3. That is a great bag! You have to use it - immediately.

  4. Beautiful bag! It's just awesome!!!

  5. I love this bag! I want one! Are you taking orders? ;-)

    Glad your kiddos liked the turkey sausage. Have you tried it as well? Gabe says it is his favorite. Also, I use Picasa for the slanted photos. You can do it in the collage settings. Very easy and free!

  6. Cute bag!! I used to own a ladies boutique and I would have carried that in a heart beat!
