Oh hold your groans and moans, it is raining here today, so I thought I'd sew up a Christmas present. This adorable tote is a variation of a tote from Whistlepig Creek Craft Patterns charming totes 3. I say variation because you will see that I decided against the band.
This is a picture of the pattern, which you can find here.
This tote will be for Buddy's Kindergarten teacher this year.
I am quite pleased to have it done. I decided to use covered buttons for the pinwheels instead of a regular button. I had never covered a button before- how easy is that? And, I think they turned out just darling.
I am contemplating some kind of tacking on the prairie points because the top one keeps flopping down. What do you think? I tried some starch alternative. Didn't seem to do much for it.
The fabric is Cotton Blossoms Charm pack and coordinating fabric.
