I started making tote bags for reals when my lovely friend Rach asked me to make her a bag. I always loved the idea especially with all the amazing patterns that are available and I had taken a course at Central St Martins so I had the basic skillz. The brief was to make her a bag that she could use for her groceries.
So I did and everything has gone from there.
One of my favourite parts (aside from giving the bag to its future owner / gifter) is putting the fabrics together that initially don’t seem to match but actually do.
