An adorable Mini-Screen Tote Bag made by Kimberley Gavrus

Kimberley sent me pictures of her version of my

Mini-Screen Tote Bag Pattern.

It is just adorable Kimberley!

This is what she had to say:

“Hi Michelle, I recently purchased your pattern instructions for your cute little tote. I made this tote featuring Whimsical Roses Monograms by Santi from Hatched in Africa embroidery designs.  I want to compliment you on your instructions…they are really nice…love all the pics. Also, I really liked working with the type of screening you suggested. I have never heard of it before, and a few Walmart employees had not either….LOL My husband and I wondered around the store until he spotted it in the hardware isle. This is one tote, you are seeing both sides. I couldn’t decide if I wanted to use the K or the G (for my last name)….so I decided to use both.  Thanks for creating this little cutie. Kimberley Gavrus.”

Kimberley, THANK YOU for sharing your adorable creation!

You did a fantastic job!

If you have made a project using one of my patterns, I would LOVE to see it and share it on my blog.

Please send me a picture or two to my email SewMichelle@outlook.com.

And….Why Knot?

I have been hard at work on my latest tote bag pattern, Why Knot?

This adorable bag measures  16 ½” wide x 12 ½” tall, 6” deep, making it the perfect size to carry all your goodies.  My construction technique makes it sturdy (no slouchy bags for me) and stylish with its unique shape.

I have taken away the scare of zippers by not including any on this pattern.  But we still need the pocket in our bag, right?  Well, I added a pleated pocket to the inside instead.

Plus, two additional pleated pockets on the outside for easy access storage to hold your cell phone and keys.  

Did you also notice the expandable sides with the magnetic snaps?

As always, my pattern includes step by step instructions with lots of pictures to guide you in making your own Why Knot Tote Bag.  I have also included my Sewnopsis with this pattern that will serve as your cheat sheet and save you lots of time by not having to run to and from the computer to see what step is next.  I have been told by customers that this is one of their favorite part of my patterns.  

If you would like to purchase my Why Knot? Tote Bag, please click HERE to visit my Etsy store.  

For the first 10 customers, this pattern will be $5.00.  After those ten have sold, the pattern will return to its normal price of $8.00.
