Friday Finish: Scripture Totes

I can never make just one of anything. Especially cute little small things like this scripture tote. I made several years ago for my daughter and her friends. Well, I needed one. Or two (as the seasons change!). And now I'm taking commissions from friends for new bags of their own!

I used this darling tutorial, but I had to change the dimensions a smidge so that my big fat scriptures would fit inside. And I think I'd change them a bit more next time - it's a tight fit, but I'm okay with that.

Choosing fabric is hard! I wanted it to be pretty, but classy. Not too loud, but definitely ME. Since the bag is gathered (I gathered it instead of pleating it), I didn't want the print to look weird.

Here's my winter bag:

And here's my summer bag:

Checking these off the 1QFAL list. Wishing I could get some big things finished!

  3. Stumbled upon your blog and is So cute! just like your bags! ;) thanks for sharing the tutorial!

  4. Ohh, how perfect! You will enjoy them very much, I'm sure. And you definitely got it right with the fabrics...they are fun but not too showy or loud for the purpose. Love them both!

  5. How very pretty. You'll enjoy them, I'm sure. You got it just right with the fabrics....not too showy or loud but still fun and cheerful. Love them both!

  6. These are beautiful bags! I esp love your summer version, but they're both beautiful finishes. Congratulations! Thank you for participating in the FAL, on behalf of the 2016 global FAL hosts.
