my first little tote bag!

Hi again!  I'm so excited to share my first tote bag!  I really love it and it's such a cute size, perfect for a little toddler.  After looking at so many sewing blogs on how to sew a tote bag, I finally sat down and made one.  I guess the tricky part for me is making sure everything comes out the right way and not inside out!

I started this bag last night and finished it this morning.  I thought I could finish the whole thing last night but I messed up on the first handle and then had to rip apart the seam and do it again.  Nowadays, it seems like the seam ripper is my best friend and not in a good way.  It's only about 5.5 inches tall, not including the handles.

I had to really pay attention to how I attached the handles so the fabrics matched.

Here is a side view.  It has a flat bottom.

I have another sewing project on my list to do.  Hoping it comes out cute too.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

If I had a little girl this is what I would give her. It is a super sweet creation. Are you going to make big girl totes too? Your sewing skills are growing by leaps and bounds.

Cute bag! And cute size! Looks reversible too! Makes me want to buy cute fabric too! Like for little girl dresses or something, although I think by the time I try to make something my little kid will be a big kid.
