When Jessica Swift asked me if I’d be interested in participating in her Sirena Summer Tote Challenge, I was like heck yes because I love her and I love Sirena and I love totes. Summer… not so much because it’s hot, but 3 out of 4 ain’t bad.
And like her entire collection is spectacular, but I was finally able to narrow it down to these prints with the Bluebottle Field Textured Denim.
I spent hours and hours searching for the perfect tote pattern and couldn’t find it, so in the end I decided to make one based on what I wanted and to make a video tutorial.
I tried to cram as much information as I could into the tutorial so even a beginning sewist could make one, so definitely check it out. Here is some additional information that wasn’t in the video.
Half Yard (HY) outer main fabric
HY lining fabric
Fat Quarter (FQ )outer pocket fabric
FQ inner pocket fabric
And here are the final pictures of both the outside and the inside. This is definitely going to be my go-to bag for the summer and then some.
It’s not too late to join Jessica’s Sirena Tote Challenge. Make sure to head over to her blog to learn all about it.
