I’ve been in the market for a new tote bag that will fit my cross stitch and has long straps.
So today, instead of cleaning, I made myself a new tote.
I didn’t have a pattern, so I just kinda winged it. The only part I would change is the interior pockets. I’ll know better for next time.
I didn’t have enough gray fabric for the straps so I ended up using a thick felt, backed with more of the liner fabric.
And the felt definitely wasn’t long enough so I sewed two pieces together for each of them.
The part I’m MOST excited about though, is these crisp, boxed corners. I’ve always struggled with these.
I came across a new way of doing it where you cut a square out of the corner before you squish the two sides together and it made ALL the difference. Now I won’t shy away from boxed corners anymore!
Thanks for looking!
