More at-the-last-minute Christmas presents! I made this Tohoku tote for my sister.


I was so happy when I was making this — I remember when it was really hard for me to make bags and I’d sit and stare at the instructions after completing each step (zoning out, sometimes, but still). When I was making this bag, though, I only needed to look at the instructions while I was cutting the fabric. Yay!

This weekend, I also worked on some Secret Santa presents for our big family Christmas party. There’s going to be more, but I finished these dish soap aprons. I think they’re hilarious!

Edit: I’m linking to Clover and Violet‘s Stash Project of the Month. I keep buying fabric when I see sales, so I rarely buy project-specific stuff anymore. Yay for stash!

  1. Oooh, loving the new bag, and great fabrics – the lining print is just making me grin :oD

    I have to admit to having pinned that washing up bottle apron. I have no idea WHY, but I pinned it, and I’m sure it’ll come in handy lol

  2. Another super cute bag! It’s great when you can tell your skills are growing, isn’t it? I never knew washing up soap needed an apron..lol! I just might have to go and make one now…

  3. I love the fabrics you used and the bow on the bag rocks! Thanks for sharing!
