Tote bags - batch 2!

The second batch of teacher totes have been finished for a while. I just had to wait a few days for some actual sunlight so I could take photos. We've been getting a lot of rain around here, it was getting depressing.

This is my favorite I think, despite the mistakes. The top print I cut in the wrong direction! I din't have enough to cut it again so I left it.


And the lining fabric I was about 2 inches short so I pieced in a strip from one of the other bags fabrics that went with it. I had a serious brain fart when I took this photo. I didn't even realize the strap was covering the strip, sorry.

Here's the other bag in the purple fabric.

The lining is a simple green.


And the final bag uses Aviary2 again.

I didn't photograph the lining because it's just a solid yellow.


Now I have to decide who gets which bag!  How is your holiday sewing going?

eta: These bags were made with the Jane Market Bag pattern. As I mentioned in this post, I definitely recommend this pattern!

These are adorable--much nicer than the gifts that I gave to my teachers when I was young. I'm glad you're making good progress on your holiday sewing!

Becky, those are so cute and I never would have known the direction on the fabric was wrong if you hadn't said something. I still think it looks great!
