Everyday Ticking Sling Tote.

The Everyday Ticking Sling Tote.
Recently, as well as finishing the New Hobo Bag, I also finished a bag from one of the books given to me at Yule. The book was French General: Home Sewn and the bag was the Everyday Ticking Sling Tote.

I love the shape and the ticking and the overall going-to-the-market feel to it, but I think it could have been constructed a lot simpler. I changed it up a bit while sewing (I’m terrible at following directions and always deviate somewhat) but I think it can be simplified even more. I’ve been wanting to make Market Totes for my shop for a while now and I think this is inspiring me to draft my own pattern.
Anyway, even though it could be a bit wider, I love the finished product and have another tote for lugging groceries. :)

    I have held that book in my hand a couple of times at B&N, and for some reason, I wouldn’t indulge myself. Why? Why? Why? You have such a gift for making the everyday things look extraordinary!

    I love it – especially the way she’s ‘wearing’ the tote…
