Tinker Tote

Here I am, sitting here staring at this bag. It is awesome and I made it!  Yes, a super proud Ta daa blog post from me!

This bag is what I chose for my VAL (details of VAL here).                             this post contains affiliate links

The pattern was supplied via this Craftsy class. The class was awesome! I sat down with a cup of tea, watched the class and totally enjoyed it, the instructor is very inspiring.
I ordered the materials (from here & here).
I then sewed & sewed & sewed!
I LOVE it!  In fact, I'm thinking of making another with longer handles to go over the pram.
I found the skills that I learned in this class will be skills that I can use in all of my other sewing projects. I can now confidently choose colours, cut, sew, quilt as you go, add zippers, attach clasps and ...bind!  Yep, all the most essential skills that you can have if you want to sew!  I totally recommend it, even if it just for the confidence that you gain from the making it.
Have you made this bag?  Will you make this bag? Maybe we should have a bag-along!
