A few years ago, before blogging, I downloaded a tote bag pattern.
For awhile I had that pattern memorized. My sewing machine was smoking as I made bags for practically everyone I knew.
Today, I made yet another bag.
Perhaps my favorite one yet.
Oh wait, I think I say that every time I make a new one. 🙂

Love that fabric…!
That is REALLY cute. I wish I had a fabric store closer. There few are far between around here. The only one I even know about is JoAnn’s in Peoria and it’s one of the largest in the country so very overwhelming. And so busy that you have to take a number and be in line for EVER. I need fabric. 😦
Believe it or not, I actually got this fabric at Wal Mart.
I love the material you used 🙂
I’m really lovin’ green and black lately, too.
Love fabric bags, yours looks quite lovely!! 😉
Thanks so much!!!
Love the bag!!!
Thanks, I use mine ALL the time.
I love it! It is super cute for summer… The colors are great!
I love the bag you made just recently, too!
Have a great day!
Gorgeous fabric! I love making tote bags for everyone I know, lol.
That’s a realy lovely bag !
Thanks so much! I hope the recipient thinks so too.
I love it! I’m intimidated by patterns but I may just have to try this one 🙂 thanks for sharing!
It’s fairly easy to understand. Just lots of measuring and cutting. I didn’t put in the inside pocket which simplified it even further. I hope you try it. You might be pleasantly surprised!
Ooooooohhh…I LOVE the pattern!! You should sell them, they’re fabulous!
Thanks! Isn’t the pattern fun! I just got a Kindle Fire for my birthday and I want to make a cover for it out of this fabric. Enjoy your day!
Wow-E! I love it! I gotta make one!
Oh yes!!! I hope you do. Super easy and fun to make!
Super Bag! Adorable!
I love your fabric choice! Gorgeous!
Thanks, I’ve been having a love affair with this fabric lately!
I love the spring green tote!! 😉
I know the color of the season is supposed to be tangerine, but I just can’t get enough of green this spring/summer season!!
Enjoy your night!
yep, i agree, it is your best yet!!
Thanks Mari! We gave it to Marty today, filled with things to take with her this summer. Fun to see you today. I’ll call you in a couple of days and we’ll plan our get together.
Must say I didn’t get one~
Never say never 😉
It turned out great! I am going to try to make one from the pattern, too! Thanks for sharing. 🙂

Fabulous, Beth. Great to see you’ve incorporated stylish with sturdy! And not surprised you can’t stop making them!
Thanks, Janene! I made this one for a friend of mine and I liked it so much, I might have to make another one for myself.
Absolutely love your bag. love, love, love it.
Thank you Mary! I gave it away yesterday to a friend of mine…..might have to make one for myself.
Enjoy your day!
I say the same thing with every new bag I make! It’s about that time again… I just bought some new fabric & got my favorite pattern out to make a summer bag!
FUN!!! I’d love to see it when you’re finished!
Hey, we are swap partners. just thought I would come down to say Hello !
Oh, I’m so excited! I’ve never participated in a swap before, I can’t wait.
Hi Beth! Kindly check my new post. You just received 2 awards. Cheers. Love floral tote bag
Thank you so much for the nominations! You have perfect timing. This is my first day of summer vacation, so I will have some time to acknowledge and nominate some bloggers myself. Enjoy your day!
It’s beautiful! Screams summer for me 🙂 and love your choices of fabrics 😉
Anytime you feel like making your friend Cara a tote bag, I am more than obliged to be the recipient of such beautiful work. 🙂
I don’t know about you, but I can always use another bag. Well, maybe that’s not entirely true; but I always THINK I can use another bag, which is why I’ll find myself dawdling down an aisle chock-full of them, testing the fabric in my hands, imagining where I might take it (stuffing it full of books and taking it to the beach, loading it with snacks and sneaking it into the movies).
Everything you make is lovely, Beth!
Happy Wednesday to you, my friend,
Cara, it’s amazing how you can put into words what I do in my mind. Believe it or not, I also fantasize about bags. 🙂 Only my dreams start in the fabric stage. My friends have dubbed them “Beth Bags”. One never knows when you might be the recipient of a “Beth Bag”…….
Now that Stockshow (I might be doing a post soon on this) and school are over, I might have some more time to sew and post.
Thanks again for your comments!
I like it! LOTS AND LOTS!!!! The fabric is so “summer” … I lve green and white! Almost as much as blue and white 😀
Oh, I’m so glad you liked the bag! Green has by far been my favorite color lately! Happy Summer!
I love this, now if I could just master my sewing machine!!!
