I always wanted to make my own totebag, or any bag. But I am having issues with my sewing machine, well… with all sewing machines, actually. Really, I can’t get the hang of it – something always go wrong within minutes.
But somehow, I managed to make a reversible totebag, totally handsewn! Many, many thanks to Skip To My Lou. She has provided a wonderful, easy-to-follow tutorial, which I have printed more than a year ago, but only dared to try recently.
This is the result of my first try:
Can you see my stitches running for their life?
Not too shabby heh…
And I am planning to make another one. This time, in different colours, of course! I smacked my head for making a reversible totebag that’s well… has no reversible purpose! I mean, the biggest purpose of a reversible totebag is that it’s a 2-in-1 bag! Well, maybe when one side gets smudgy, I could turn to the other side? Hahaha!
For the new colours, I am totally inspired by Made‘s bold and trendy colour choices. And some kind of heavy duty cotton… gotta look out for that special fabric…
