Easy to follow! So fun!

My first experience with sewing my own sprout pattern, such a fun project. Very easy to follow. The colors are so bright. I used Kona Cotton which is a great quality cotton that is durable and a regular machine can sew with ease through both layers. The bag seems very sturdy and will get lots of use! TIP: I used a hair straightener (I do not have an iron) to help me with the handles so I did not have to reverse a long tube, and it worked GREAT!

Easy, fun, and useful

This project was a great way for me to play with lots of different print fabrics from Spoonflower while creating something really useful. I use this tote every day, and unlike the boring white canvas totes I use for groceries, this one is colorful. I indulged my love of origami motifs and bright colors without having to buy many expensive yards of fabric. The pattern was so easy to cut out and sew; it helped me become familiar with my new sewing machine. I wish I had washed the fabric before cutting though, as some of the dye came off on my iron and also rubbed onto other fabric.

Gonna go to the beach in aloha style

This white-glove sewn tote bag is awesome! It reverses neatly. The linen/cotton fabric feels substantial but not stiff. And the indigo and white prints look great together. I'm so pleased. Mahalo! [I rated this 5 stars for fun because I didn't have to sew it myself. :-) ]
