Flower 241 Tote

I know I said no new sewing projects until after we move but this poor little girl has been pestering me about making her a ladybug purse like her sister. On Monday we went to Ikea, while we were there I let her pick out some fabric. She picked this crazy large flower print but it was perfect for fussy cutting the smaller flowers for the front and back panels.

I decided to use some lighter weight denim for the side panels and strap. (You can’t really tell in the pictures but it is a little speckled.)  I sadly did not have the hardware to make her strap adjustable so I just made it longer to wear messenger style.

I have a very very happy two year old now. She will no longer has to be jealous of her sister, lol. Oh girls…

I used the Noodlehead 241 Tote pattern printed at 75% again. It is such a great pattern. I still need to get my interfacing and such to make her Super Tote pattern!

Thanks for the fat quarter tip. I have some Echino FQ's I *might* be willing to share. Your girls have seemed so happy with their 241 totes!

lovely :-) Can I ask - because you used the heavier ikea fabric for this did you use any interfacing with it? I want to give this a try but it is very hard to find interfacing where I live. Thanks :-)
