I’ve been needing a new purse for quite a while since my old one had torn zippers, etc. I looked for months but never found anything that I liked. So, I made one myself! On a recent vacation to my in-laws’ house I went to a quilt shop with my sister-in-law and husband’s aunt. I found this great pattern called the Janet Tote by Totes for Sandy and the adorable fabric.
I pushed myself really hard for a couple of days to get it done, since I knew it would be so much harder to get to once we got back home. Do you like how it turned out? At first I was disappointed because it was much bigger than I expected. But then I realized how often I carry two bags. Now I can throw the “extra” stuff in my one bag–diapers/wipes, books for read with the kids for school, mail/packages for the post office, iPad, etc.! I love it!
