Yes, it’s another tote. (I can’t help it! They are the perfect quick gift.)
I’m a big fan of this one that I made for Barret’s mom. (Barret is the boyfriend’s real name.) It’s made from yard sale fabric (of course) and the colors are great for summer.
The fabric I had wasn’t wide enough to make the tote as wide as I wanted, so I took a horizontal striped piece and flipped it to add some extra width with vertical stripes. I like how the stripes run perpendicular to each other.
I used white cotton webbing from Hobby Lobby for the handles. It gave it the clean summery look I was going for.
This tote has been adorning a doorknob in my craft room for the last few weeks. I finished the tote shortly after Sherry’s birthday, but didn’t get a chance to give it to her until the other day. She’s in town watching HD (a.k.a. the nephew) for the week while his mom transitions back to work. That kid is going to be three months old before long! And I think he will need a three-month-old birthday present. 🙂
Up next: I took a break from totes and finished that romper for Emma!
