Cute Tute

Red Riding Tote tutorial

My Little Red Riding Hood tote tutorial is up on the Fabric Mill’s blog this afternoon.  Since I have all boys around here I had to sweet talk my niece into being my model.  It didn’t take much convincing!

Little Red Riding Hood Tote tutorial

The bag can be made from just 3/4 yard of the little border print from the Little Red Riding Hood line by Riley Blake.  I did use a coordinating print for the bottom of the bag, but that’s optional since there’s plenty of the main print to use as well.

This bag that I made last week was my tester bag for the Red Riding Tote.  Counting these two tote bags, I think my “completed tote bag” tally is up to a whopping 4.  Yes, I’ve only ever made four bags I think.  At least ones I can remember.

I do love making them – for the same reasons I enjoyed making that pillow last week.  They’re all fast and easy projects that help me use up scraps and smaller pieces of my stash.  Ok, now I’m back to my bigger WIPS.
