    Baby sister tote for DDIL

    I made this tote, it's actually a nice purse size, for my DDIL's birthday last month. I used a fat quarter pack from JoAnn's along with a couple of stash pieces. I also bought the pattern there, it's a Whistlepig Pattern called Baby Sister, I think it's a smaller version of one of their other tote patterns.
    It was pretty simple to make, but be warned, it takes over 300 inches of bias binding. The optional zipper went in like a charm, and I just love the fancy pull that I found at Hobby Lobby, it was in the jewelry clearance section.
    My DDIL loved it, I really like the way it turned out too, I think I'll make one for me.

    It looks pretty roomy.

    It's a very pretty tote, but does make a good purse too. You did a great job on it.

    That's great. Also like the inside very much. Yep, that would be a lot of bias tape, but worth it.

    That's a beautiful bag. She must be really pleased with it and with the fact that you made it especially for her. Joyce in DE
