In June, I got to lead a workshop sewing the Poolside Tote for my quilt guild, so after the class was over, I finished up all my step-out bits to make myself yet another tote!

This time, I put in the exterior zippered pocket, key fob, and an extra interior zippered pocket. I rarely zip up the outside pocket, but it’s nice to have just in case. The interior zippered pocket is super handy for carrying Cosmo’s lactaid (for emergency ice cream stops!), and I loooooooove the key fob. I like to make mine extra long so that I can unlock doors without taking my bag off my shoulder. This one is made it out of two Cotton & Steel selvedges, which I think turned out pretty cute. 🙂

Later on, my friend said she’d like a tote like this, so I made a second one! Can you even tell the difference? :D:D

  1. Oh yes – the loooong key fob. What a brilliant invention. And did you embroider something nice along its edge?

  2. Your bags are AWESOME! I struggle to sew bags – so much interfacing to sew on/around! Yours are so crisp and I love your choice of fabrics!
