Simple Tote Bag from Learn to Sew with Lauren

Finally some sewing! This is the Simple Tote Bag from "Learn to Sew with Lauren" by Lauren Guthrie that I previously reviewed here.


I was in need of a new bag for my knitting projects so though I would knock one up.

The tote is a very simple make and would make a great first project for someone learning to sew. 


It is a simple design with a front pocket but there is also an option to add trim and to divide the pocket into two sections.


If you were a beginner and you made this bag you would learn how to sew straight seams and to make a buttonhole, which can be very scary if your machine is playing up!


I made my tote bag from some scraps of cotton linen mix that I had left over and the front pocket is made from a fat quarter. The button is from my stash too.


So all in all a great stashbusting project!
