I made totes!

Hello there!
Yes, you heard it, I made totes! I have to admit I mostly enjoy sewing apparel but every now and then I see a project that makes me feel like trying something new. I ran into the Railroad Tote from Purl Soho on Instagram and couldn't resist making one, well really two. Since my lovely grandma is visiting from Peru, I couldn't help to use her as a model for my newly completed projects and she was cool with it, so here they go.



Did I mention she is 85 years young? I think she looks amazing and she is just so full of joy and energy, totally contagious!

The only thing I changed from the original instructions was making them both lined and I can say I love the result! I used a light canvas fabric from Sarah Jane's Sommer collection for Michael Miller fabrics lined with coordinating quilting cotton from the same line. For my second one I used some fabulous Wove it or Weave it by Michael Miller fabrics and since this line has a heavier weight it worked out perfect for the outside as well as for the lining.

See you next time with more sewing finds!

Ready for Back to School?

Hi There!
Today I am posting at the Made for Mermaids blog again, this time with a  super fun, back to school friendly project: The fabulous Samantha Skirt with Side ties.

Did I mention I got a silhouette Cameo just recently? I loved creating this coordinating shirt for this back to school skirt using heat transfer vinyl.
I hope you enjoy this project as much as I did, until next time!
