Some time ago, I set aside the fabric to make a tote bag.
Today, I finally made it.
This is the shirt.
We had already browsed through the shop. but spotted this fabric in the front display window as we were leaving. Of course, I had to go back in and purchase some!
Since I didn’t know exactly how much I would need for a shirt, I was generous in my purchase, just to be safe.
Some other time, I think later on, I bought some ginkgo-leaf print fabric. Because I like ginkgo leaves. Which, coincidentally, coordinated wonderfully with the Mt. Fuji fabric.
A couple of years ago, I wrote up and illustrated the instructions for this 12-Pocket Tote pattern. I’ve made it up once before, as part of a Christmas gift exchange at work.
It’s a neat pattern. Gotta love all those pockets.
I started working on it this morning, and finished it this afternoon. Talk about (nearly) instant gratification. And this was even with being gone for a couple hours in the middle of the day to go have lunch with a friend.
