My sister, Michelle, is leaving for Copenhagen, Denmark in a couple of days to present a group project, which you can learn more about at . She needed a cute tote bag to carry around when she is site seeing. She found a cute sewing pattern from Lotta Jansdotter's Simple Sewing . The whole project took me just a few hours including cutting the squares out for the pockets and lining.

The fabric I used for this tote was from Ikea from their Cecilia collection just $5.99/yard! Love that place. They have great fabrics there for all sorts of projects.

Great front pocket and side pocket, great for holding water bottles (reusable of course).
Complete with a sewn in key ring holder.

It came out looking great! This project is super simple and just by changing the fabric you can change out the whole look. You can embellish this tote super easy by adding a tassel or a few well placed buttons! Super easy and great for a beginner sewer.

Happy Sewing!
