    New Pockets A Plenty totes done

    I think this is my new favorite pattern by Susan Marsh. It is a large, 13 1/2 x 15 1/2 x 4 1/2, with great big pockets and a small cell phone pocket outside, with lots of divided pockets inside. I added my key clip, tissue packet cover, and rigid bottom in a removable slip cover, but don't have them in yet. I love this pattern!! Sorry, but be prepared to see a few more in the not so distant future! I love coordinating different fabrics for them! A bit of a break from the jeans totes!

    It is an easy pattern, especially if you have made bags before. I found it very similar to a Bow Tuck, except the front pockets. Give it a go!!

    Beautiful, love the colors you picked. I love to make different totes for work. One for each month. Thanks for sharing.

    Why do I keep trying to find the "like" button?

    Very nicely done. Did you make the red, white and blue button on the first one? It really sets the bag off.
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    On the first one, the flower I attached to the flap of the pocket is from the same fabric as the pocket, and made by one of those Yo-Yo makers by Clover. It isn't a button, just decoration, and it is sewn on through the pocket to help keep the flap down. The sun button is gold-tone metal with crystals in the points, and a face in the middle. That is one of the buttons I got from Lotsofbuttons.com and I love it! It also is sewn on to help keep the flap down. In the brown one, the three yo-yo flowers (ovals) are also from another Clover yo-yo maker and I made them with coordinating fabrics. The brown flower button on the other flap is made of leather.
