Happy Tuesday! It sure is a happy Tuesday around here. I am literally doing the happy dance. I had this tote pattern on the back burner for a very long time, longer than I want to admit. I had some changes that I've been wanting to make and working on all of the diagrams on my own was very time consuming, but I am SEW happy it's finally complete.
I decided to break into my Wistful Winds fat quarter bundle by Doohikey Designs for Riley Blake. I had a hard time deciding on the colors to use, but in the end I settled on the blue and yellow combination. The prints are bright and cheery, making it so much fun to sew.
One of the changes I made was to lengthen the shoulder straps and also changing the width so it's more comfortable to wear.
I like to have lots of pockets when I am making bags so that I can organize all of my belongings. I tend to load up my bags with more things than weekdays and these bigger bags are a must for me.
Thank you for visiting! This pattern is now available in my Craftsy shop.
Just wanted to share with you how I came up with the name to this tote pattern. There's a roundabout that I have to pass through almost daily to pick up my son. One day while thinking about what I would like to rename this pattern to, it dawned on me that I should name it Roundabout.
