Made this one for Delilah's bestest babysitter:
If you can sew a straight line, you can sew this tote. Last weekend I carried one to the park so when Delilah was finished playing with her ball, I could carry it. (Along with sippy cup, snacks, etc!)
The tutorial is easy peasy. All straight line sewing and lots of pictures and clear directions. A great project for a beginning sewer to gain confidence, and a satisfying quick and useful project for someone with experience. My only tip is to lower the tension when you go over the seams. I set my machine at 2 for the project, down to 1 over the seams.
Oh, snap, I guess I love this project so much I made ANOTHER ONE! This one for a friend with boys. I was excited when I saw the dinosaur camo fabric! So many pretty decorator fabrics for girls but not so much for boys.
I think this year I will be making these and using them in place of giftbags and wrap. A gift in a gift!
I will post my Spring Decor $5 craft challenge tutorial this week. No sewing in that one.
