I am absolutely smitten with the Art Student Tote bag from Anna Maria Horner. I made one and didn’t get a photo of it before I started using it and now it’s looking pretty rough. I made another one with Riley Blake Chevron fabric.
The pattern is so easy to follow. It took me a little less than 9 hours total to finish this bag. Started on July 6, 2013 and finished July 8, 2013. Once it was done, the bag was so pretty and crisp that I didn’t want to use it and mash up the fabric on the handles or let any other signs of wear show. But I finally caved and brought it with us to the Great Forest Park Balloon Race this year. It held a sweatshirt for each of us, Dan, Eli, and myself, plus other odds and ends so it was stuffed pretty full, but it all fit inside!
