We are also in the process of designing a super fun challenge for our readers (and ourselves!) More information to come later this week.
This afternoon, while browsing through the many blogs that I follow, I came across Ucreate Crafts’ September “Create With Me” Project. The Tohoku Tote was originally featured on I Am Momma Hear Me Roar and sold for charity. Now it is available for all of us to create and share.
After perusing the pattern I decided to give it a shot. Best case scenario, I’d have something to blog about today. Worst case, my daughter would have yet another piece for her “land of misfit purses” collection. I am glad to say that it came out pretty great!
I have to admit, I will probably remove the bow. I don’t really think I made it the right way and I can see the hand stitching which really bugs me.
I love the pockets. I made a bigger one for my keys and a divided one for my cell phone and lip gloss. I put the clasp on a little too high, and so it was a little hard to stitch around it. You can see that my top stitching around the opening isn’t as professional as I would like.
All in all, this bag came out pretty darn cute and is a great size! Thanks to Ucreate for this fun group project!
