So this is what kept me busy all afternoon yesterday. I found this sweet tote bag tutorial from Design*Sponge, and had to try it out!
This bag was actually pretty easy to make once I figured out the pattern...I'm horrible at measurements and patterns period, so it was a bit of a challenge to make sure I got it right. The straps are a bit different than the pattern calls for too. I actually used a belt I got from Goodwill for 99¢! Landon was kind enough to help me get the grommets tightened up. I think I'll look for a thinner belt next time, or just use fabric straps.
But now I have a great little bag for books, groceries, knitting, whatever!
Today I am going to knock out the rest of my book. It's due at the library and they won't let me renew since there's such a big waiting list. Sheesh.
