A Medium Sized Patchwork Tote Bag

I always like fabric tote bags. They do not take up a lot of storing space as they can be folded up. Tote bags of different sizes and styles are must have items so as to suit different occasions and match clothes.

This tote bag measures around 11" (W) x 11.5" (H) x 2.7" (D) with a 19.5" handle. You can wear it on your shoulder. The patchwork is made of my favourite Atsuko Matsuyama fabrics, Japanese fabrics and some other fabrics. The two sides are different.

It has been a while...

It has been a while since my last post...I have been a great slacker, because I am pregnant!! My baby boy will come out in 14 days. I did not have any mood to do sewing since I have the baby in my tummy, and I always tell my friends and colleagues that this is because of his male hormones. I don't even have mood to make a bambi doll for him =.=

Recently, I managed to do some sewing. I know life will be very different but I still want to have time to sew!! It will be difficult but I am prepared to strike a balance among work, family and private time.

This is what I have made: a small zipper pouch with a little hexagon patchwork.

I think the bambi and floral combination is cute.

I used some scraps to decorate the back.

I like this Japan YKK zipper with a little gold metal head. I only use this kind of zipper.
