4th of July Tote Bag

Hey! I'm back from a trip to Texas with my boys. We had such fun with all the kids - swimming, barbecuing and painting their ugly brick wall in the living room.

Before I went, I designed and made this canvas tote to replace my last one. I used corduroy for the handles and bottom as well as ticking fabric for the pocket and a sturdy canvas interior. Hoping this holds up for many more adventures.

Thanks for reading!

Hey! One of my favorite projects this summer was this shark my son made. We followed McCalls pattern M7103 and the shark turned out to be a lot bigger than we expected! It was a challenging project for a five year old but very rewarding. We have named him Sharky. 

Thanks for stopping by.
