Summer Madras Tote tutorial by Noodlehead. I've made a dozen of these bags now... LOVE them!
(Model, I am not, LOL! My daughter was taking the pictures and I was trying not to crack up)
(The back of the tote, love that deer!)
After I sewed up the bag, I thought the linen pocket on the front was bare. I kicked myself for not stitching something on it, DUH. Anyways, I whipped out my book Make it Sew Modern by V&Co. The little flower you see there on the cover of the book? I had to make one for this tote. It was so fun to make, I will be whipping up more of them for sure.
The book I bought for Ros was by one of my favorite authors, Shannon Hale. She writes young adult fantasy type stories. They are really good. So, I chose The Book of a Thousand Days for her. I loved this book, I wanted to buy her all of Shannon Hale's books, but held back, shipping 10 books to Australia wasn't in my budget...
Have you read any books by Shannon Hale? What have been your favorite summer reads?
