I decided to get re-acquainted with my sewing machine for the Friends of Craftster Secret Swap. My super secret partner had mentioned wanting a bag and I just happened to stumble upon this awesome (meaning easy) tutorial from Make It & Love It for a tote.
This was my first time making a bag/tote of any kind and I am really happy with the results. This was a great project for novice sewer such as myself. The one thing I realized that I really need to work on is cutting fabric. I must buy a yardstick!!!
