Remember that fat quarter club I joined? Well here’s what this Amy Butler fabric inspired me to do.That’s right. I made this tote bag, courtesy of Happy Zombie. I received and used three fat quarters within two weeks. This is unprecedented.
I can also say that I am not the worst top-stitcher in the world.
A few changes:
I made only one pocket.
I sewed the straps on a little closer because I wasn’t sure if I would catch the sides of the pocket otherwise.
I reinforced the strap by backstitiching before going down the other side.
It turned out the perfect size for magazines. Luckily, the recipient is a great fan of travelling with magazines.
