irome social tote

Hope you had a wonderful weekend and Mother’s day!

(that’s my Grandma’s copy of the Reader’s Digest Complete Guide to Sewing, handed down to me, yay!)

I’m over at the Kokka blog today showing off my Social Tote that I made with their new collection: Irome.

I ended up taking way too many pictures of this little guy.  It’s too much fun putting things in it and moving it around my house.  I already have another one cut out and ready to go.  I had such a great time designing this guy for Carolyn, you can read more about it here.  Once you make one I guarantee you’ll want to make one for all of your crafty friends!

Thanks for stopping by!  I appreciate your comments and questions and everything so much.

Pattern: Social Tote
Fabrics: Irome by Kokka and Interweave Chambray in Pepper by Robert Kaufman

    Oh goodness…that is freaking adorable. If I had little ones it would be the perfect little tote for their lego people!:)

  7. Ooh, I love the little leather scrap accent-have been playing around with some repurposed leather on your own bag designs. Very fun. Wonderful work as always.


  8. And btw, I have THE SAME sewing book I bought as a teenager and an 80s era Vogue Knitting Reference book to match. 🙂

    yep, I need to make this one too! I love the idea of having the removable pin cushion and a way to move around my sewing essentials. One day my main craft table will be for sewing, then stamping, then sewing again. This will make the transition a little smoother. Thanks for making another!

    I have been wanting to make this since you first gave us a peak at it.
    I really wish it was a downloadable pattern like yours.
    I will have to wait until it comes to Canada. Thanks so much for sharing your ideas.

  23. MICHELLE says:

    I finally found the pattern in stock! I can’t wait to give it a try.

    I would take way too many photos of this one too. This is, hands down, my favorite version of the Sewcial Tote I’ve seen to date. I have the pattern on my table…need to make this one.
