I wanted to make a tote bag for two reasons. I know it's becoming increasingly vital for us all to take steps towards being more green, and decrease our plastic usage and waste consumption. I thought having an especially lovely tote bag would make it all the more likely that we'd remember to take it with us when we pop out to the grocery. This bag is perfect for doing your shopping, but I know you'll find it useful as an everyday bag too.
I also wanted to create a project for those of you looking to start sewing. This is a simple beginner pattern that will introduce you to the very basic skills that form the foundation for many other projects.
I hope you enjoy making and using this pattern as much as I've enjoyed making it for you! Thanks again for following along!

UPDATE: I've added three new sizes to the pattern so that it can be used more appropriately for men and children.
Hi guys! I hope you're keeping safe and healthy during this crazy time. After a bit of tweaking a few masks patterns, I've found a fit and style that I really like and I wanted to share it with you, in case you'd like to make masks for yourself, or your community.
This mask features a center seam that has shaping to accommodate the nose and chin. It also has two two layers of fabric, and a slot for a filter to be placed between layers.
Sloane features a fitted bodice with a princess seam, which is my favorite for fitting the bust area! Having a seam over the bust makes modifications to this area a pleasure.
In this tutorial, I'll show you how to create a full and small bust adjustment for this style. I'll show you the quick and dirty method for those of you who have just a little bit to add or take away, and I'll also walk you through the traditional approach to a bust adjustment for this style.
