Craftsy Tote Bag Class
Have you ever wondered how they get those nice square corners on tote bags? It's baffled me for ages. I mean, I don't lose sleep over it or anything like that. But, it has "bugged" me a bit!
This morning I took my very first Craftsy class on how to make a reversible tote, taught by Kristin Link. I totally enjoyed doing this. I was smiling the whole time! AND, she showed exactly how you "box" a corner. So simple, even I can do it.
I had lots of apron fabric sitting around and thought that it would make a marvelous bag, plus I had bought some lining on my last trip to JoAnn's Fabrics.
Even a nice size pocket was added with knitters in mind.
And VOILA! Now that the basics are out of the way, I can embellish the next one and the one after that, too. This first one may not be perfect, but I totally had a ball making it.
And since we haven't had a little giveaway for ages AND since tomorrow is our son's 36th birthday, how about if we have a little giveaway for this tote? How does that sound?
Just leave a comment on this post and if you love to sew, tell everyone what you enjoy making the most. If you don't sew, just make something up!!
On Friday, May 24th, I'll randomly draw one lucky name from all the comments (well, that's if anyone leaves any!) and announce the winner that day.
See you all then.
