I am not sure how I feel about my sew-along picture, but since I am terrible at creating this type of thing, so we are gonna have to stick with it!
The totebag sew-along will start on Monday, July 11th, and I will post each day for 4 days until the bag is completed. Comments can be left on the posts, but most of the discussion will take place here on Flickr. Flickr accounts are free (as long as you have under a certain amount of photos) and easy to set up. Each evening I will check to group to answer questions, troubleshoot sewing problems and just hang out. It should be fun!
main bag front (middle): 1/2 yard fabric
side bag front: 1/2 yard fabric
interior of bag: 1/2 yard fabric
pocket: 1/3 yard fabric ( a fat quarter or scrap will work just fine)
lining: 1/2 yard warm and natural batting
straps: 100" of 1-1/4" natural-colored webbing (I bought mine at Mama She Crazy on Etsy)
I have posted a listing in my shop for a kit here. Please note that the price reflects fabric that costs $9.00 per yard. If you want something else you can convo me and I will set up a custom-listing for you.
I am looking forward to starting this sew-along! It should be lots of fun. :)
