I recently bought this fun tote pattern from my blogging friend Michelle of Sew Michelle. I can’t wait to make it! Besides the detailed, photo-filled e-book, Michelle includes a unique feature called a “Sewnopsis” at the end of her patterns—a reference tool that has the supply list, cutting instructions, and important steps all on one super-handy page. Michelle has other amazing bag patterns as well and has also been kind enough to make some FREE patterns available to us! Click on the “Tutorials” link to find projects such as this “Owl Sweet Treat Holder”—PERFECT for Valentine’s Day!
“I have taught sewing classes for many years and have learned that including detailed instructions with lots of pictures makes it seem like I am right there with you when working on your project. My mission is to ‘Inspire You to Sew’ and I hope you will go and do just that,” shares Michelle. Please check out Michelle’s patterns at Sew Michelle from this post or anytime from my Shop Love! page above. ♥
I do love them ALL! 🙂
Katherine, thank you for the sweet post. I hope your readers enjoy the Valentine goody.
Thank YOU for being so creative . . . and so generous with your creations, Michelle! It’s an honor to “share” you with all my blogging friends. 🙂
What a great tote! It’ll be a fun project 🙂
I’m definitely missing my sewing machine these days! When I get home from my business trip I’ll give it a big hug and get busy making something. 🙂
Like the bag, very girly 🙂 (I will go and look at those tutorials, the owl is too cute) 🙂
Yay! I really love them all. Michelle is SO talented!!! 🙂

I’ve been thinking about making my own bag. What a timely post. Thanks, K.

These are great! 🙂
They ARE! And please check out all of Michelle’s other patterns and free tutorials . . . she’s SO creative! 🙂
Good idea for gifts.
That is cute! When you make it, let us know if it’s beginner friendly for newbies like me! 🙂

That is such a cool bag!! And the instruction sheet sounds like a good one. Thanks for sharing your ‘find’!!! Can’t wait to see what you do with it!
It will be fun to make, I know! And I DO want to start making bags this year! 🙂
How generous of Michelle to post these patterns.
It IS! They’re all smile-makers, that’s for sure! 🙂
