The Tohoku Tote
Today I am publicly posting the full pattern and tutorial for the Tohoku Tote. I have chosen to do this for a few reasons. 1) Kari from UCreate asked if it could be used for her monthly "Create With Me" and Kari rocks. I'm thrilled about this. 2) I think we raised what we could selling if for charity. It was "purchased" by over 400 people. Thank you SO much to those of you who donated to the cause. Please don't feel unhappy that everyone gets the pattern now. So, anyhow....here's the full pattern and tutorial. I have tried to be extremely thorough in this tutorial for those of you who are new to sewing. Print off the PDF pattern pieces and tape them together. Assemble your supplies. ½ a yard of fabric for the outer part½ a yard for the inside½ a year for the bow, stripe, and straps2 yards of fusable interfacing1 magnetic snapcoordinating thread Both of the bags (version 1 and 2) require the same supplies. If you are new to sewing, you might not know about interfacing. Now you're here.
