When I saw her Pretty Pleats Reversible Tote pattern that she debuted earlier this month, I thought it was Adorable. Yet, being someone who has a background in Design and Patternmaking, I usually don't buy many patterns.
This past Saturday at our STLMQG meeting, Cara and Mary Claire both brought a tote that they had made from Michelle's pattern. Cara was one of the pattern-testers and Mary Claire whipped one up in no time the previous evening. Seeing these totes in real life immediately changed my mind...that afternoon when I got home, I hopped on Etsy and bought the pattern. This was actually my first Etsy purchase :-)
Let me tell you, the pattern is well-written, simple enough for a beginner; but with enough options for a more experienced sewer too. The sky's the limit.
Here's my 1st Pretty Little Tote...I say first; because I can see myself making these in lots of prints/patterns.
Fabric purchased from Jo-Ann's
So, if you are looking for a tote pattern, definately give this one a try. You can buy the PDF pattern at Michelle's Etsy shop.
