Poolside Tote Testers and your Poolsides

Of course no pattern would be complete without pattern testers. I am so grateful for the feedback they give me. And I’m also grateful they share their time and talents with me. Here are some beautiful totes made using the Poolside Tote pattern.

I’m so happy to have Darcy (Modern Cozy) join testing this time. We got to meet up at Sewing Summit a few years ago and she is just the most sincere and sweet person. I hope we get to meet again! Darcy sewed up this gorgeous version with a beautiful patchwork pocket. You’ll have to stop over to see her full notes! She used Soft & Stable as recommended for a tote that you’d like to stand up on it’s own.

[Darcy’s extra awesome because she showed this great size comparison between the Poolside and Super Tote patterns.]

My friend Kristie (Obsessive Crafting Disorder) also joined along! We’ve been hanging out online for years and I’m always happy to see what she’s sewing or knitting! (see that amazing sweater? yep, totally jealous) Kristie put her creative twist on her finished Poolside by making the front zippered pocket with hexies!! How awesome are they? Perfect for that stray quilt block you’ve had laying in your work in progress pile. And don’t get me started on that pink zipper! Love! She also added the slip pocket on the backside of the tote as well.

June also helped test, she’s always incredibly thorough and I appreciate her diligence so much. And her Poolside featuring Rashida’s Koi Canvas, yummmm!

Nicke and Darci also helped in testing, they were awesome. Hoping I can see their versions soon! I also tested with the ladies at Olive Juice Quilts! They made amazing totes, again, I need pictures!

And of course I want to show off your Poolside Totes! The Bag of the Month club members had sew up quite a few and of course I’ve seen a bunch of new ones pop up, too! Can’t wait to see more! If you’ve made a Poolside Tote please add it to the flickr group or tag your tote #poolsidetote on Instagram.
