Sashiko Zipper Pouch | A Tutorial

This pouch all started when I found some Sashiko templates and realized they were nearly the right size for my rainbow zipper pouch pattern. I quickly got to work making not one, not two, but 5 pouches! When I get excited about something I go all in! And while you can access the original rainbow zipper pouch tutorial and probably figure out how to modify it for the sashiko templates (which yields a pouch a BIT smaller than the original size), I thought I’d go ahead and do the work for you.

The Every Adventure Tote | A Tutorial

If you’re ever at my house for dinner and request a recipe, be prepared for me to photocopy the recipe, make many crossings out and revisions, and then hand it over to you looking like a completely different recipe. What does this have to do with today’s post, you might ask? Well, for years, I’ve used a very lovely bag tutorial that has served me well. And just like my recipes, I started to tweak it slightly, here and there, every time I made one. Different fabric weights, different handles, different construction, different measurements… you get the idea. And slowly, it turned into its own thing. And it deserved its own tutorial, not a bunch of chicken scratches over a recipe, so to speak.

Here I am today, bringing you that tutorial. And I encourage you to also make it your own. Add pockets! Change the handle placement! Add a snap closure! You get the idea. Make it, hack it, tweak it, and enjoy it! And most of all, bring it along on every adventure!

I recently shared on Instagram a fabric tote bag I made for my mom. I used up some of my precious, precious Cotton + Steel canvas fabric and I absolutely love how it turned out. I think a few of you did too, since I’ve gotten quite a few requests for my methods and the pattern I used! These tote bags are great to use for groceries, library books, quilt guild meetings, and more. The possibilities are endless, and once you see how easy they are to make, you won’t be able to stop at one. Want to make your own? Here we go! Continue reading “Modern Reusable Tote Bags”
