Pockets. POCKETS. POCKETS!! They are definitely the most requested part of any tote bag tutorial I create. This week I am fulfilling that request with a big tote bag, complete with two LARGE, ROOMY pockets and two regular size pockets inside.
I call this my All Day Tote because it’s large enough to hold all the supplies and activities I might want to take for a whole day out of the house with my kids (and it may or may not take a whole day to make too).
There is a PDF to accompany this tutorial and it is currently FREE! Actually all my PDFs are FREE right now! I was having trouble with PayPal and decided to bypass PayPal by not charging for my patterns until further notice. So head over to my shop and pick up any PDFs you’ve been wanting to try. To help me out please keep sharing my videos, pinning my posts, and leaving comments on youTube. Those things really are a huge help in getting my tutorials in front of more people.

Last year I was looking through the children’s books at the thrift store and came across a cute book from the 1950s called Rackety -Boom. I have a weakness for vintage illustrations, so I bought the book, even though it... Continue reading →
Anyone remember the thrift haul video I did with my mom last Winter?? In that video I showed a Son de Flor dress I found but it was too big and needed to be taken in about 4 inches. You... Continue reading →
I was contacted by McCalls a few weeks ago and asked to make a video tutorial for them. They know a lot of people have pulled out their sewing machines to make masks during the past couple of months and... Continue reading →
