Awesome craft tote

I went slow and read instructions several times. Even though I bought the WRONG stiff interfacing….non-fusible. The small bag turned out perfect and I can’t stop looking at it…I can’t believe I made it. Of course I created an extra step for myself…I had to quilt the stiff interfacing to the main fabric. I’ll be making more of these cute bags. Outstanding instructions….

Great pattern and instructions

I made the large version but with careful cutting of paper pattern I am able to use both sizes from 1 pattern. The instructions are clear with good pictures. It gives options for different fabrics and interfacing.

Alina tote bag, great pattern

This was a very easy pattern to follow, I’d never made anything like this before and wanted to make it for baby gifts for my daughter. It turned out pretty good for my first attempt 👍
