Super Tote – Around the Bend

Sewing projects that highlight a favorite fabric are always my fave. I like to let large-scale designs take the stage and leave room for a few supporting roles with the accents and linings. This Super Tote featuring Around the Bend falls directly into that category!

Any opportunity to make samples of my older patterns is always a treat. The familiarity of the project combined with the newness of the fabric designs makes for an intriguing sew! I pulled out this main print from Around the Bend (there’s several colorways to chose from) and had a fun time playing around with different possibilities for the lining/accent parts. I finally settled on this combo, but I think I could have easily made 5 more just for fun to see how everything comes together.

Foam stabilizer was the main interfacing on this one (byAnnie’s). Stitch Supply Co. is where I like to buy mine. Foam interfacing was fairly new to the scene back when the Super Tote was first released. I do like using it for this pattern on the main front/back pieces. An added bonus to this project is that there’s very little hardware involved. A zipper and a pronged magnetic snap is all you need! And you can even skip those if you wanted!
