I am so happy to be a part of the Backyard Roses Blog Tour! The minute saw the Backyard Roses fabric by Nadra of Ellis and Higgs for Riley Blake, I fell in love. Y'all know I am a sucker for a good floral and these florals are perfect!
I have been wanting to make a Maker's Tote for a while so I figured this was the perfect time.
The Maker's Tote is a great pattern. Anna of Noodlehead is a genius when it comes to pattern writing so I expected no less.
I made the smaller version of the bag and plan to send it to my mother-in-law for Mother's Day. It's a darling little bag that is perfect for keeping sewing notions or whatever you want in it. It totally reminds me of the old school doctor bags- which I think was the inspiration for Anna when she came up with the pattern. So cute!
I love the gusseted pockets on the inside and the gusset on the side of the bag. Little details like that are what I love seeing in a pattern and make the pattern exciting to me.
I didn't make any modifications to the bag- it was perfect as is in my opinion. :)
Be sure to check out the other projects that have been made as part of the tour- they are amazing!

Hope you have a wonderful week! Thanks for stopping by!
P.S.- These last few week have been so busy! I am getting ready to go to Quilt Market for the first time ever and I am beyond excited! (Let me know if you'll be there too- I'd love to meet you!)
I'm making several things for some of the fabric designers to display in their booths, which is super fun, but has kept me busy! I'll share those projects soon! :)
