Kate just had her bloggy birthday and celebrated by offering a free pattern and tutorial for the most adorable tote bag EVER. THEN she announced a sew along and now has a linky for everyone to share their bags made with her super cute pattern.
Sooooo of course I signed up and yesterday I finished my bag. It was fast and simple. Just the reason I like Kate's fun patterns. Yep. this project rocks like fraggles. You can click here to view the tutorial and get the pattern or here to join the fun and link up!
Here is my creation!
These colors are very much my style. I love the bright fun girliness!
I added a scallop detail with my machine just to go with the theme
Other than that I made no real modifications to the pattern. I do sort of wish I would have put pockets inside. I was way to excited to get this finished though so I skipped that idea
What do you think? I am in love! AND I am slightly concerned that Kate lives in my head and fishes around in there to piece together stuff she knows I will love. THEN she is awesome enough to create the patterns which saves me tons of work hahaha!
Kate has even inspired me to start designing some of my own patterns and possibly open a shop. I am still thinking about it. I have some ideas though and with winter coming fast in Ohio I imagine when Christmas is over I will have plenty of winter nights to try to create some patterns of my own!
