Tote-ally Cool

Mira & I went back to Material Girls to grab some fabric and I found the greatest diaper bag/tote bag pattern. I really wanted this floral fabric by Amy Butler but they didn't have any yardage left :( But with THIS pattern the only yardage you need is for the sides & bottom panels! You can use fat quarters for the entire rest of the bag! YAY! It just so happened that they DID have the fabric in fat quarters. The lining of the bag is made from strips of coordinating fabric that I sewed into panels. It has four roomy pockets on the inside, two on the front and one large one on the back.

It was SUPER easy and I was able to complete it in two sittings. The only reason I needed 2 sittings was that Nolan likes to come into my craft room and ink his hands and make big messes!
I try to remember to keep the doors closed on the cabinet with all the inks and sharp tools in it. Sometimes he has to improvise when they are closed and find other things to get this!

He loves to get into my scrapbooking tote bag on wheels and have his sisters pull him around :)

I just found your post by surfing all over looking at bag patterns and such. Anyhow this is DARLING. The fact that you pieced the inside instead of just taking any ole cute enough fabric on the inside is blowing my mind! you rock girl!
