My Original Tote Bag with EPP Star Pockets ☆トートバッグのポケットにパッチワークの星飾り☆

Happy September everyone!

Our kids are finally back in school (phew!), and we are adjusting ourselves back into our normal routine schedules (which means very sleepy mornings) zzz...


Here's a tote that I made a couple months back as a sample project of my original tote bag pattern, The Kate's Tote. As you can see, the tote turned out quite *scrappy*... which I love!


To try something different, I stitched these English Paper Pieced (EPP) stars to embellish both sides of tote pockets.

このバッグ、ペーパーライナー法という手縫いのピーシング法(英語名は English Paper Piecing = EPP)で作ったパッチワークの星を2つ、バッグ両面のポケットに縫い付けています。



For tote lining, I used my fave turquoise blue solids. Magnetic snap closure opening.


My original "The Kate's Tote" pattern is available in my etsy shop.


Trying different fabrics (and adding some stars!) really make a difference when making tote bags out of one sewing pattern... And we all agree that's the fun of sewing, right?


Happy stitching!

***Love, Amy***

what a great tote bag Amy. Love all that pretty scrappiness :)

Look at the difference! The dark background really makes the handle detail stand out. I really like both versions. One is more summery and the other more autumn/wintery. Beautiful!

I just love this bag! Beautiful colors and "happy scraps" :) You always make such wonderful things! I really admire your work, it gives me a lot of inspiration!

Here in Norway the autumn is knocking at our door, but this weekend we had some nice and warm weather. I suppose that these days were the last ones with such temperatures - we actually ate dinner at the porch today, and that is not normal in september!

I have to admit that I look forward to some rainy days, because then I can sew without thinking that I "should have" done something in the garden.

Oh - that was a long comment - wish you a nice week!

Best wishes from Liv Iren, in the middle of Norway :)
