A Tote or two... from this easy pattern
Totally Dotti inspired!
This one could be just what I need for the Babies Bag.
Do you think it suits me?
I am so completely hooked on Sewing now, I cant stop! I find myself sneaking into the sewing room any spare chance I get, rummaging through thrift shops for fabric scraps and feeding my new addiction for vintage fabrics via ebay! I have so many little projects on the go at the moment, I can get myself into a bit of a pickle sometimes with my daily family schedule and need to be a bit more mindful of the dinner menu and housekeeping plan but at 7 1/2 months pregnant you can probably imagine, its all such a chore. . .
I find sewing/crafting/creating so theraputic - Soul Food! Can you survive on that? Don't worry the children are still getting fed, bathed and educated... ; )
Most of my sewing projects are for practical use, completely inspired by Amanda Blake Soule's Handmade Home, and not to mention the many, many wonderful creative bloggers out there. I'm on a mission to create as much as possible for my home decor and organisation.
So after the Totes were created I moved onto a few drawstring bags, simply made with a basic rectangle pattern, sewn up the sides and added drawstring, these bags are useful for anything and everything.
Bags for the little ones to keep their dolls and dolls clothes together, teddies, puzzles, lego etc... anything that usually gets scattered all over the floor, I will be making a few more of these in different fabrics, the plan is that the girls will identify what toys belong in what bags and Pack Up time should be easier, quicker and maybe more fun?
A Library Bag for my new little School girl
And a chalk bag (of course) for the chalk!
