Hey, It’s Kimberly! Since it’s National Sewing and Quilting Month, I challenged myself to create my very first bag! Of course I needed major help, which Leslie of The Seasoned Homemaker supplied! She was kind enough to stop by the Fat Quarter Shop and share her bag-making wisdom she had accumulated over the years.
We chose the Elite Tote pattern by Kenzie Mac & Co. in the large size. It seemed to be a simple project, but boy, was I wrong. I am a quilter at heart and not a sewer so this was a HUGE challenge for me. The bag also required jute, which is a material that I’ve never worked with. Leslie gave me a lot of help with making this bag and I love the finished product!
