We’re launching our National Sewing Month celebration with a super-cute sew-along here on Seams & Scissors!
In the last couple years, I’m sure you’ve seen woodland critters like foxes, owls and raccoons on everything from t-shirts to home decor to -of course- cute bags and purses. Here we are with autumn on the way again, and you can show your seasonal style with this easy tote bag sewing pattern by Katie Smith from PunkProjects.com. (Have you met Katie? We adore her cute sewing patterns, and we invite her to guest blog now and then. Check out this DIY Notebook Cover she designed!)
Now you need to look at this cute tote bag and decide to sew-along with us!
(Btw, don’t forget to enter to win our Grand Prize Giveaway!)
SO CUTE, right?
Each day, we’ll post easy step-by-step instructions so that by the end of the week, you’ll have your very own woodland critter tote bag! This foxy tote bag sewing pattern features a sleepy little fox face. Just imagine toting around your library books or everyday essentials.
Wait until you see the back of this bag — It’s cute overload, trust us. But you’ll just have to find out why when you sew along with us this week, starting tomorrow with Part 1. In the meantime, you can gather these materials to prepare.
You will need:
- 1 32″ x 11″ piece of Canvas or Muslin Material
- Red Felt
- Black Felt
- White Felt
- Sewing Machine
- 1 Yard of Ribbon
Get ready to start an easy, quick project with us tomorrow morning! See you then.
