My Super tote is done and I just love it! Had a slight hiccup when the light on my sewing machine went out - I tried using a desk lamp so that I could see what I was sewing, but it is all sorted with a new bulb though:)Once all of the pieces were cut out this bag came together fairly quickly. I chose fabrics to coordinate with the colours in the Eli spoonflower print from Valentina Ramos - the straps and gusset are made from a charcoal linen/cotton blend.
I lined the front pocket with a lovely lime homespun, and added in a magnetic snap closure. I didn't use piping but just followed the suggestion from Kelly @ Kelbysews to leave about 1/4 of an inch of the lime lining showing on the front.
Annas pattern has two elastic pockets on the inside of the bag but I only made one for one side of the lining and I put a zippered pocket with a groovy green zip on the other side. The orange print on the outside is one from Denyse Schmidt's Aunt Edna range, and the lining on the inside is a bright fuchsia homespun.I also made a little key fob/tab thingy to hang my keys from as this bag is really, really big and they would easily be lost in the bottom of it.
A ususal, my kitty had to come and investigate what I was doing in the garden:)
