1. I am travelling at the end of this month and am itching to make something new to travel with me. A zippy pouch? I have many. A purse? Too fiddly. What to make, what to make.....
2. I was reading blogs over my lunch today and saw a super tutorial to make a tote bag.
A tote! But I need a zipping top to shove it under an air plane seat. What's that, you say? A Super Tote!!! The light came on.
Oh, yes. Paypal has this way of enabling spontaneous purchases. Before I knew it I had a brand spankin' new Super Tote pattern printed out at my desk.
I am home tonight pulling pretty fabrics....
|Clearly Playful from FSQ is my first choice, combined with two Essex linens.|
Here is my question for all of you. Have you made a Super Tote? Do you have any hints or tips to share? Or any ideas of what you'd add into the pattern? I see lots of cool suggestions like adding internal zipper pockets, using one massive cross-body loop instead of two handles, internal key fobs or external smaller pockets. It's kind of fun daydreaming a bit, isn't it? I'm totally jazzed to start stitching over the holiday weekend. Bring it on!
