We’re continuing our celebration of the arrival of my first fabric collection Nocturne with QT Fabrics and posting a replay of one of our most popular bag patterns, the Tourist Tote by Sew Many Creations!
We’ve got new kits available for it using Nocturne in two colorways. I just love how these turned out and how the owls ended up front and center in the middle of the bag. They look awesome and the painterly texture fabric gives you the cork look without the cork price for the bottom and handles.
The Tourist Tote Bag by Sew Many Creations is the very first bag I ever made and it is so easy. With just eight pieces and no hardware, this bag is just about as simple as it gets, but it looks super stylish and will fit literally EVERYTHING!
We’ll go over how to fuse Decor Bond to the wrong side of your fabrics, tips for working with cork fabric and canvas and tons of tips on how to get a professional finish that will make all your friends think you bought it!
As always, any video featuring a pattern is meant to be a supplemental guide for all you visual learners out there. To get the cutting instructions and step-by-step diagrams, make sure you purchase a copy of Tourist Tote by Sew Many Creations. You’re supporting the pattern designer and Quilt Addicts Anonymous, so we all can keep bringing you sewing inspiration!
