I have been doing a lot of sewing lately… So, today, I would love to share my most recent sewing endeavor with you dolls!!! I made this tote a few months ago and have been carrying it with me everywhere! 🙂
This post was first shared on Momma Go Round. Thanks Nina! 🙂
My favorite accessory is always a good bag! I carry a purse or tote with me every single day! 🙂
I’m also really, really picky about the bags I carry… If I find one I love I will wear it completely out before going on the hunt for a new one!
So, I was due for a new bag… but instead of shopping around for weeks, I whipped one up! 🙂
I’m not going to give you a rundown of how it was made… If you want to make one, the pattern is available in most craft stores or online (Simplicity W2420).
But I am going to tell you that with a couple yards of fabric and my sewing machine I made myself an accessory that I’m just as proud to carry as any $100 bag!
The reasons I’m so proud of this tote? I saved my family the money it would’ve taken to purchase a more expensive bag… I made myself something that I can actually use and enjoy! All while staying in my budget!
We’ve all read how Nina (of Momma Go Round) stays within her shopping budget by carefully shopping for just the right item. Well in this case, I MADE myself just the right item! 🙂
Maybe you’re not a seamstress… But you can just as easily make yourself a beautiful beaded necklace or dye that faded pair of blue jeans into a bright pink pair that’s become so popular. 😉 It’s totally doable friends!
I’ll be back next week with the market tote I made for my Mom as well as a little something extra! 🙂
Happy Sewing Sweet Friends!!!
P.S. We’d love if you’d follow along! Thanks lovely!!
