Called a pocket tote not because of the pocket on the front,
but because it folds up into the pocket on the front!
(as a side note, I just listed this in my etsy)
I'm so excited about this new bag! Maybe you remember the wrap-it-up shopping bag from a while back? I was trying to make a new bag that wasn't quite as bulky when it was all tucked away and I think this is going to work. The pocket is about 5.5 X 5.5 or so and less than an inch thick with the bag tucked inside. So what do you all think? Do you have a preference for one or the other, and why?
And looky what I started today:
I ooouu'd and aww'd over Nanette's teapots, and with her blessing, I have made up my very own similar pattern. I absolutely am enamored with these teapots! I started this one thinking I'd make myself a potholder but now I'm not so sure that's what it'll end up as. As I was ironing the ric-rac, it started to get a leetle bit shiny so I'm just thinkin' that something straight out of the oven is probably gonna melt it right off. I'm guessing there's some polyester in that there ric-rac and I need all cotton. Lesson learned. So now what? (besides a handle for the lid?? I just realized I didn't make a lid handle!!) What should I do with this beautiful teapot??
