multi-tasking craftiness

Pillowcases weren't the only thing on the agenda at last night's craft-a-thon.

I'd like to introduce you to my new summer tote, though it still needs a few edits. Rather than one narrow strap — which was pinned on for the sake of this photo — I'm going to add two wider straps, one on each side, for added sturdiness.

I fell in love with this gray and ivory fabric immediately. Now that I see it in bag form, I think I'm going to go back and get more to make a skirt!

Do you like the pleats? It was my first-time attempt, and I can safely say that it's something I'll use again and again.

I'm not sure the size of this baby is going to help  my overloaded purse issue, but what can ya do?


  1. It looks sooooooo pretty! I can't stop gushing about how much I LOVE that fabric. A skirt is definitely in order.

  2. Love it!!!! I wish I was crafty!!! lol

  3. This is amazing!! You should open an Etsy store!

  4. This is lovely!! the pillow cases are wonderful too :D
