Super Cute Library Tote!

Do you ever make something and when it's done you just can't believe how great it is? That's exactly how I feel about this library tote! I had been wanting/needing to make one for awhile and finally picked out the fabric this week and got to work. I followed this tutorial using a little different measurements, but then added the cute ruffle. I saw a ruffled bag on a blog a few weeks ago and decided I could figure it out myself, and I did. I'm quite impressed since I really think of myself as "pretending to know how to sew", and not really knowing anything but the basics. This bag is so fun, I really can't wait to make another trip to the library. I hope they all notice my bag. And then I hope they want to know where I got it. LOL! :)

The fabric is from Moda- it's the perfect pattern for a bag of books, no? The lining of the bag is the same material as the ruffle.
    Oh, by the way... have I mentioned the cute ruffle I did all on my own? ;)
    My next sewing adventure is going to be some of those cute little necktie onesies for the little baby boys being born into our family this year. Are you doing anything crafty this weekend?

This is SO great. I am envious. I really need to learn to use my sewing machine. I am so scared of it & have failed up until now. I just love this! TFS!
