Beary Beary Love You, part 2 – Sewing Tote Bag

So here come the part 2,  sewing tote bag for my little one. If you miss the previous posting, here is the link. All the materials I used in this project came from my scrap fabric storage therefore the size this tote bag basically based on what scrap fabric size I had.

I cut the main (the one with bear embroidery) and lining fabric in 14″ x 18″ including 1/4″ seam allowance, the straps is 1″ wide x 12″ long ( finished size).

Fold in half and sew the fabric on the longest side with right side facing together. Do the same for the lining. Draw line about 2″ from each corner, sew, then cut the excess. Do the same for the lining.

Turn the main fabric and lining with the right side facing together, position each straps about 3″ from edge, sew the top and leave 2″ opening for flipping.

My girl loves stuffed animal, specially bear, anything with bear… I got this bear sketch from the bed sheet, it has printed bears on it and she always kisses them whenever I use the sheet on the bed… so cute to just watch her doing so 🙂

Initially I was planning to add some wild flowers and bees, as you can see I had drawn them on the paper  in the right side, but then the plan’s changed … I added balloons and writing instead, I think this would be more fun for her.
