Tote-ally Cool

Ok, that title was tote-ally lame. Oh man, I did it again.

This tote project was intimidating, but I am so happy with how it turned out! My thanks go out to Mama's Pocketbook where I got the free pattern & tutorial.

I amended the tutorial a bit and added a zipper pocket on the inside as well as a cell phone/PDA holder. The outside of my tote as 2 lined pockets. I used a thicker fabric, it will wear better over time.

I used a great zipper tutorial to do the hidden zippered pockets.

Good luck! I'm sure I'll be making more of these in different fabrics!

    Thanks for the link to the free tote bag pattern and I want to say your tote bag is AWESOME! I love the fabrics you choose and that you improvised and added the features you wanted. That's the beauty of this basic pattern! I'm sure you'll be making more of them and can't wait to see them!
