After I saw iro iro’s beautiful polka dot tote bag, I knew I had to make one as well, and not just because it was so cute. I needed one to carry my school stuff- binder, book, lunch, and extra clothes for P.E. On one occasion, I actually dropped my books while crossing the street. Fortunately, iro iro wrote a tutorial, which I mostly followed….
I don’t think that it’s strong enough to carry everything, but it will definitely help. And it will make a great accessory! I just love the strawberry-floral pattern. It’s also fully lined in a bright yellow cotton, and I did 2 rows of top stitching on the straps.
All credits for the pattern go to Sophia, over at http://iroirocrafts.wordpress.com/ If you haven’t checked her blog out yet, you really should. Also, thanks for checking out my blog, please leave a comment, and if you have a blog, I’ll definitely check it out!
P.S: Sorry for the date on the pictures, it’s clearly wrong as they were just taken today
