Simple, useful, stylish. BOOM.
my mom's supertote. The pattern was adorable. I couldn't resist - even if I had no idea what I was going to do with it when I bought it.
3 totes out of one cut of 60% off fabric. YES. I still need to make the third tote but go ahead and throw that one on my someday pile.
I used the instructions for a boxed out tote on Made. Great tips in that tutorial!
|love the boxed out bottom!|
But then I added in my own details. I used the same dimensions and top stitching for the straps as in the Supertote:
Adding in a pop of color underneath:
|NEON AND CHEVRONS OH MY!|
Then I reinforced the straps with a line of angled stitches to mimic the chevrons:
I used french seams throughout so that they are completely finished inside.
It's all in the details, people.
The pink handled one is more boxed out than the green and the green one has a shorter handle:
Yay teacher totes!
Also just as an extra fun bonus picture... my daughter on her first day of preschool and her (almost) last day.
