This weekend I've spent a bit of time playing around with fabric for myself. First I'll share my favorite - the Pretty Pleats Reversible Tote!
A few weeks ago I started seeing all my bloggy/flickr friends making these - they were pattern testing for Michelle. Let me tell you, I've only ever followed one purse pattern before, so it wasn't like I typically do this sort of thing... furthermore, I hate following patterns. This one was a breeze though!!
I can't tell you how impressed I am by this pattern!! I love that Michelle provided cutting instruction to make frugal use of your fabric (and to make cutting easy!). Most of the pattern pieces can be at least partially cut using a rotary cutter!
The directions were straight forward and precise. No surprise "try to figure it out yourself" moments. It was late-night-sewing friendly. No cussing even. :)
I'm so excited to use this tote! I think it's my new going to work bag!
Thanks Michelle for writing such a fabulous pattern! I see more of these in my future!
