Tote bag swap

I wish I had realised how bad the photos were of this before I sent it off on Saturday!

I made a bag for the secret tote bag swap- my partner liked dull colours with a bit of orange and duck egg blue which meant it was a bit of a challenge to move away from the usual colour-fest style swap. We were given the theme of geometry and I decided I wanted to have a go at Octagons and machine pieced a front pocket. I honestly ran out of time to do the other side so I hope it qualifies.

The handles are webbing and there’s a big zip to keep things from falling out. I made it up as I went along but now I’m thinking I could make another with two Octagon-y pockets from a Scrumptious charm pack and write a tutorial sometime.
