{patchwork tote}


Last week, I decided to sit down and make myself something. I wanted to make a bag of some sort, and since my sewing skills are somewhat limited, I decided on a tote.


And then I decided to go for a patchwork design.
I cut out all the squares, lining, straps, etc.
Worked on and off during the week.
And finally finished it yesterday.


It is not perfect.
But I made it.
And now I know how to make it better next time. :)
