My Modern Tote!

I'm so excited to share that my Modern Tote has been published in the March/April issue of Love of Quilting!



Fons and Porter did such a great job photographing the tote, I just love it!



Here's my original tote. I used metal rivets to secure the handles, but the pattern calls for simply stitching them to secure. Much easier, and no extra tools needed!



The pattern includes a variation on my technique for covering 1" webbing to use for handles. I love the sturdiness of the webbing, and this allows me to use fun fabric without sacrificing that sturdiness!

If you sew up a tote, I'd love to see it!
