Here's the adorable reversible grocery bag I made at my sewing class! It took me at least 20 minutes to choose these fabrics because there were so many incredible choices at Spool. Now that I've made it I think that I should have chosen darker fabrics because these will get dirty so quickly, I couldn't possibly use it as a grocery bag.
The leaf pattern is "Lindy Leaf" from the Nicey Jane collection by Heather Bailey, and the birds are from Erin McMorris' Park Slope collection.
I am in love with those birds.
It took me less than four hours from start to finish (with lots of coaching in between). After I finished it I immediately called to ask my mom to find my sewing machine from high school which has been sitting neglected for quite a few years now. Hopefully I will follow through and dust that baby off for some springtime sewing!
And check it out - they have the grocery tote pattern available for free on the Spool blog.
