Comfort Cafe Fabric Tote

I recently saw one of these little fabric totes on Pinterest, so I googled the pattern and bought a copy from the Fat Quarter Shop ~ here's a link if you fancy making one yourself! I chose the Comfort Cafe fabric, it's gorgeous and I haven't used it yet ... the pattern is a little fiddly, the SU fabric width is a little different than the pattern states, but if you take your time, it goes together quite easily. I do think you need some experience with sewing though, that binding was a bugger!!!


Here's a closer look at all those lovely pockets. You really could store a ton of supplies in one of these things, it's very useful. This one is sitting on my desk, LOVE IT!


And look at that gorgeous zipper pocket on the outside, LINED in a contrasting fabric. So cute! A mobile phone, or cash would pop perfectly into there!



I think I'll try one in Floral District next ...

Help! I love this tote and would like to try making one (or two). The link you gave for the Fat Quarter Shop says it is out of stock. Do you know the exact name of the pattern so I can find it somewhere else. BTW you did a beautiful job on these. dhaddad@cablespeed.com

Oh I love this! But I don't sew at all. Would you ever consider making these and selling them? Have a great day! Julene V.

I am looking for this pattern and can't find it on the link for the site of the fat quarter shop. Do you have a name so I can google it and find it someplace else. It is darling and I sure would like to make one!! I even have the same fabric!!
