Good Monday, all!
So clearly, this isn't Day 7 of Fancy-Up Your Hosh Pants. That'll be tomorrow! The weather was a little crummy for pictures this weekend, and yesterday was ma'birthday! I chose to give myself a Hosh pass, and instead finished sewing up this Super Tote for my Mama for Mother's Day!
Check THAT out, right?!
I am absolutely in love with this bag, and I won't lie - I was a little devastated giving it away. Lol, sorry mom. It came together pretty quick though, so I know I'll make one for ME in the near future. I may or may not have just bought all three colorways of Anna Marie Horner's Ghost Wing linen, so that might be happening for this bag.
The name Super Tote is just perfect. It's a really big tote with the added benefit of many pockets to keep everything organized. Super, right?!
This was my first foray into making a bag of this magnitude - in size and in detail. The details are what take this bag from basic tote, to really great looking tote. Seriously, check out this recessed zipper! As a person who throws things (into the car, onto the dining room table, etc...), I wholeheartedly appreciate that design feature.
There is a large pocket on the exterior with a magnetic snap closure. Love that - perfect for books or magazines. And there is a great pleat detail on either side of the bag.
There is some serious Mary Poppins action going on inside this tote. I was thisclose to taking a picture of Emmy sitting inside the thing. So much room!
Also, there are pockets on each side of the interior that you can customize to suit your needs. My mom knits, so I made sure to make a narrow pocket to hold needles.
For scale, a three year old modeling the Super Tote:
So big right?! Love it.
All of the fabrics I used are from Joann's. The exterior is all home decor weight except for the solid white, which is linen (same as this dress), and the light grey interior is quilting cotton.
So there you have it! A really Super Tote! My mama likes it, I'm pleased to report. :)
Have a good day all! Check back tomorrow for MY Hosh refashion!
