I stitched up the Super Tote pattern designed by Anna of Noodlehead in some of my new favorite prints, Foxglove by Aneela Hoey for Cloud 9 Fabrics as well as some upcycled denim.
This is most definitely my new favorite bag! Anna's patterns are beautiful & very well written. I only made a few minor modifications. The pattern gives instructions for gathered pockets on both sides of the lining. I included pockets on only one side. The pockets help to corral the small things without being fussy. I also added a pocket panel to the denim portion of the outer pocket. This gave me a quick spot to slip my phone or a pen without it getting lost on the bottom of the large outer pocket. I forgot to snap pictures, but essentially I stitched a rectangle to the denim portion & then added stitching to separate the panel into 3 pockets.
The fabrics I used for this Super Tote are primarily organic cottons from Cloud 9 Fabrics
up-cycled denim from my personal stash
