Ayumi is dear online friend and her book is filled with so many amazing projects! I have a bunch on my to-do list and this bag is now one of my favorites!
This week's project is the Handy Market Tote and I loved this pattern!
I love Ayumi's use of a cute Japanese print for her pockets but I decided to try this technique and make my pockets patchwork.
The pattern went together very well - she gives great techniques for sewing up your bag and lightbulb: do what she says - it really works (this was for me and anyone else who tends to just wing it)!
I used some of my favorite fabrics in the patchwork, some Koi by Rashida Coleman-Hale for the straps and lining and Essex linen from Robert Kaufman (love this fabric) for the outside panels.
Such fun little details in this pattern!
And now the best part - I have goodies for you!
