*squeeeEeEEeal* I am sooo thrilled about how this tote come out! I’ve been meaning to make bags/totes for children, but just haven’t gotten around to it. Again, thanks to Steve for making a big order, I had to come up with something for a 4/5 year old. This was actually not on my mind when I initially thought of making this tote bag. I knew I wanted to make it reversible and had the robots print already in mind, but I had no idea what I wanted for the other side.
I quickly went through my pile of scrap fabrics to see what I could find for inspiration – pockets, appliqueing, patchwork, etc. I came across the dinos print and thought it was cute, but put it aside. I was thinking of placing a whole print on this other side, but then, slowly I remembered I had this canvas fabric and then remembered that I had some light blue cotton flannel already adhered to double-sided fusible fabric (used for the lettering for the name).
..and voila! This is what came out!
I was so thrilled when I finished stitching the handles and pulled the bag inside-out/right side out. It was toooo cute!!! I seriously wanted to keep it for myself!! ..yes, and change my name to “Manas.” ;P
I will definitely be making more children totes!
