I finally made a 241 tote!!! (pattern designed by Ana at Noodlehead) I printed the pattern pieces at 75% on my printer to make it smaller for my daughter. I ordered the fabric from Pink Castle Fabrics (consulting her of course) we decided on purple since it is her favorite color. When it arrived she was so happy and about five minutes later she asked me if her purse was finished. This happened a lot in the next 24 hours. She was very persistent. I needed a few supplies like interfacing and a snap before it could get done. Luckily we were able to go get some so I started the tote the day after the fabric arrived. I didn't put in any zippers and I added an adjustable strap (1 1/4” hardware that I happened to have took off of an old purse) I figured her tote can grow with her a bit better with an adjustable strap. It was pretty quick project to make!
A little pocket in the inside:
The next morning she had her bag and oh was she happy! She loves it and totes it around the house. She even went to get produce with her dad carrying the grocery list and shopping bags in her 241 tote.
