Berry Tote Bag

The days had been busy but still I managed to find some time to sew
and finished this Berry Tote Bag :)

I had came across the tote bag tutorial by Ayumi Mills @ Pink Penguin while looking around for tote bag inspirations.
It was my first time making a bag with a cover but I finished the bag with no hiccups! I guess I have the tutorial to thank as the instructions were so clear and easy to follow!

For this Berry Tote Bag, I had used strawberry garden linen mix cotton fabric and a red tiny dot cotton fabric for the body and rim of the bag.
Both fabrics were purchased from Tine's shop - bytinster on etsy and oh, bytinster is having a 40% discount now!
For the handle, it is brown cotton by Lecien. As for the cover fabric, it's a medium weight floral design which I bought from ebay a long time ago.

As I had meant this to be a tote bag rather than lunch bag,
I made changes to the boxing corner and had it sewn at 3" instead of the 5" mentioned on the tutorial.

I am happy with the finished bag and loving this bag style. The tutorial really makes it so much easier to complete the bag :D

Next on "order" - from my little girl, is to make a lunch bag
in her favourite Hello Kitty fabric and then perhaps one to keep my working yarns and a few more for my nieces.
