Working Ahead: Ticking Tote
I know working ahead is probably not allowed, but I just had to do this tote. This is a pattern from the Simple Gifts to Stitch book -- part of the finny and donk sewing adventure. The fabrics are left over canvas made to look like ticking and a little valentine print. I departed from the pattern in a few ways:
1) made a lining with pocket
2) added bias tape to the edges of the outside pockets
3) used twill tape for handle
Ended up giving this one as a thank you to Cooper's teacher who watched the kids while I was sick. Remarkably easy pattern.
