I mention this because I just found a brilliant free video class on Craftsy that teaches you how to make a tote bag. I've downloaded the video and I'm going to get my daughter and granddaughter to watch it. Maybe they can even have a bit of auntie/niece bonding over it!
On the bag theme, Keira has plans to make a shoe bag - with a shoe print fabric (above and below) The fabric is just amazing, and one metre gets you enough to make a few bags.
You may remember my dotty denim from this post - it's from Wholeport like the shoe print fabric. I have more plans for this denim - I want some oven mitts from it and also a cushion. Unfortunately, I did waste some of it
