Winslow Market Tote Chronicles: Episode 5
So, I was kind of hoping to get better pictures of this particular bag: pictures with my now 13 year old (as of Friday February 13th) sister modeling.
But manashevitz, that gal is busy, busy, busy. Almost as busy as me!
I had visions of a much cuter post, but sometimes you have got to let these things go.
Especially when you need to clear your sister's schedule with her manager (also known as my business associate and oh yeah, our MOM!).
We are a bit like Romeo and Juliet. Two ships passing in the night.
I was able to snag her bag, but not the girl herself for a photo shoot.
The girl herself is busy with math meets (not sure where the love of/aptitude for math comes from: not from me, I assure you!) and she is playing one of the lead roles in her school's production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream" (That bit she gets from me, for sure!).
Anyhow, here is the Winslow Market Tote I made her for Christmas.
I love how it turned out: just right for toting things to and from math meets and play rehearsals.
The fabric is from Heather Ross' "Mendocino" line that has now been discontinued, plus one of the Echino solids for the bottom of the bag and the lining.
And as always, the fabulous Winslow Market Tote pattern, designed by the equally fabulous Kathy Mack is available for free here.
I love ya, Noo Noo: you thirteen year old, you! Don't get any older okay?
