Friday Finish: The Multi-Tasker Tote

Or as I took to calling it, the "where in the *@## is my seam ripper" tote.

Seriously. I have been sewing since I was like 8, so we're going on nearly 30 years. I've done the pattern thing, and I love a well-written pattern that doesn't confuse me.

Don't tell me to read through it before I begin. Fat lot of good that does. This bag requires serious reading. Like, analyzing literature to find the hidden meaning reading.

Still. I love the final result.

I've had this Paris print for going on four years now. Bought it in Seattle and stashed it away for a sunny day. Today is that sunny day, and it was all cut out. So I made a bag!

If anyone can tell me why blogger randomly decides to load the picture sideways, I'd love to know. I just wanted to show the purple polka dot side of the straps is all. So here they are. Sideways.

Linking up!


  1. This post cracked me up! So relatable, heaven kniws I been there wondering how such patterns excist to torture the world and yet the finish is lovely. I adore that fabric but then again Paris is one of my favorite places. I don't know what to tell you about the picture. I've tried so many things in an attempt to fix it to no avail - moody blogger.

  2. That fabric is gorgeous! The bag was worth the effort!

  3. Totally worth the torture to end up with the adorable tote. I would have never survived a pattern that I had to actually read - give me pictures and even better a video or just hold my hand.
