If you've ever made a Noodle-Head open wide zipper pouch, this tote will feel very familiar. It feels like a jumbo sized open wide pouch with handles and some fancy pockets, but the general construction is exactly the same....and the result is awesome!!!
The instructions include optional leather handles, or you can make fabric ones like I did. My tote features cotton and steel mustang canvas and a fun print from Valori Wells that I found in my stash, I think they made a really gorgeous combination. One word about the front pocket lining. It is only visible on the inside of the hidden pocket, but it is a pretty large cut of fabric since it makes up the bottom half of the tote front. So, you don't need to use a special fabric for this piece, a not-my-favorite piece would work fine.
|The inside is huge!|
|The hidden pockets are tricky to photograph|
|Pretty proud of this zipper tab!|
|For size comparison...my 4 1/2 year old|
This tote will be gifted to my mother-in-law as she is an epic horse lover. I'm hoping she loves it as much as I do!
