Clear back in January I posted about the Mini-Screen Bag pattern I bought from Sew Michelle. I finally found the perfect spot of time to make it! It was really fun, and I learned some new-to-me techniques, such as making and inserting piping and making zipper tabs. The pattern uses screen (which is why it’s see-through!) and two coordinating fabrics. And did I say that it’s REALLY fun to make??? 🙂 You can find the pattern here along with other bags, totes, purses, and notebook covers. And . . . Michelle even has some F-R-E-E patterns for us on her TUTORIALS page! Thank you, Michelle! ♥
Reblogged this on Amanda's Words / starfire8me and commented:
That is REALLY great. I am so happy for you…
Is it a small bag or a tote??? just wondering…
Hmmm . . . the description calls it a bag . . . but it’s sort of like a tote with a zippered top . . . so either one, I guess! 🙂 It would be the perfect size for carrying lunch to work! 🙂
thanks…liked the idea of the screen …
Sewing that screen fabric must have been a challenge (I wouldn’t want to have to seam rip!). Looks great!
Thank you! The screen wasn’t bad at all . . . it’s “pet screen” and very flexible. I do have a LOT left, though, so I’ll have to find some more projects to make with it. More totes??? 🙂
Your Mini-Screen Tote Bag is adorable! You did a great job! I’m thrilled you enjoyed the pattern. :>)
Thank YOU, Michelle! 🙂
Super project!!! I love totes!!!! (ex: my post today!!)
Thank you, Doreen! And I LOVE your tote!!! 🙂
Thank you, oh most “kindred spirit”!!!!
love the fabric … I would wear it with pride
Thank you! I found this burlap the other day and just fell in love with it! 🙂
can really understand that
your tote is very pretty, I love how the fabric looks like waves 🙂 & perfect to carry all mommy-stuff too! 🙂
Thank you! :>)
Thank you, Ingrid! I do love the unique design of the sides. I usually give all my projects away, but I may hang on to this for a lunch bag! 🙂
Thank you! It’s always fun to try a brand-new project, isn’t it? 🙂
Beautiful bag !!
Thank you, Izabel! 🙂
You are just so crafty – I like this tote and for me it would be perfect for the weekend running errands!
Thank you, Antionette! I’ve been collecting lots of bag patterns/tutorials, so it’s fun to start trying them out! 🙂
HaHa. Loved that “perfect spot of time”
Sometimes it IS just a spot, isn’t it??? 🙂
It looks great! I particularly like the fabric you chose – it sets off the screen well!
Thank you, Theresa! I just love that burlap with the letters on it. The other piece is a remnant, but I thought the circle design would harmonize. Sometimes picking out the fabrics is half the fun, don’t you think? 🙂
Very nice Katherine. Is that screen like from a screen window? If so I bet it was difficult to work with. Thanks for sharing. Love it.
Thank you, Tamara! It’s actually vinyl pet screen, so it’s very flexible. I wouldn’t have known what it was or where to find it, but Michelle kindly explains EVERYTHING in her patterns, including a picture of the pet screen package and that it’s available at Lowe’s! (I’m always buying something at Lowe’s to use for a project that’s NOT its intended purpose!) 🙂
I love that about you! 🙂
Q – LOVE this! Hummmmm. I might need one too. LOL
I think you do! 🙂
Thank you, Jeanna! 🙂
Katherine, this one is for me. Very pretty. Blessings, Mtetar
Thank you! I know you could make a really pretty one, Mtetar! 🙂
