I'm still here!

Hello there, sorry I've been a bad blogger and haven't taken a single photo of my creations lately! Let's say that I'm stocking on stuff to show for the upcoming Me-Made-June alright^^? Still, to make up for my laisser-aller I've prepared a tutorial to sew a simple tote bag that has become my favourite one -I often have bag fancies, 2 months ago I was very much into the Buttercup design for instance. I'm sure there are already many patterns and how-tos for this kind of bag on the internet but I really like the proportions on this one, it's small enough not to be a bother yet I can pack it with my things and believe me I do! It's also a nice one to use your scraps and if you don't sew a closure on it it's completely reversible :) Let's have a look at the latest one I made:


I used cotton from my striped shirt and floral fabric from a Japanese top I haven't posted about yet. The inside is another remnant of simple white polyester fabric. I put a striped pocket inside, the bag closes with a snap and the bow is a brooch. Here's the tutorial:

See you soon, have a nice weekend!
