My 200th Post - Sewing is by my Daughter

I opened my blogger and I see this is my 200th post - Wow!

The sewing I am sharing today is all done by my 13 year-old daughter, Meredith, a girl who loves tote bags. She will walk into Aeropostale and want everyone of them. Well, she decided to make one. Recognize the fabric? She used the bits and pieces I had left from the diaper bag, plus some polka dots to create her bag.

Meredith picked Vogue 629 pattern, this is one that is in the displays on the pattern cabinets and doesn't have the full 4 numbers. We looked and it isn't on their website at all.

Now time for Meredith's Pattern Review:

Was this a hard tote to sew?
Not really and it went very quickly.

What did you like best about the pattern?
I like the fabric the best and the outside pocket.

Are you going to make anymore?
Yes, for my sister.



In action:

The pocket can reverse

Thanks for all the kind comments on the blog and I am happy to share this 200th post with Meredith.
