Weekend Project: Tote bag @ Modern Domestic

It sure feels like Fall around here, but this weekend we managed to see the sunshine both days, and it was Oregon at its best – bluuuueee skies, green grass and a little Fall breeze mixed in between. Sunshine usually means lots of DIY projects around the house, but on Saturday I spent nearly the entire afternoon indoors sewing this tote bag at Modern Domestic.

I’m a very beginner sewer, so I was quite amazed that I walked out of my class with this bag in tow. This project speaks volumes about Modern Domestic – they have top of the line machines, teachers and tools.

Somehow, this fabric…


Turned into this…

I love how practical this bag is and also the fact that it made me actually diligently practice my sewing skills for 3 plus hours(and yes, your eyes aren’t playing tricks on you, the bag is reversible). Practice surely makes perfect, and I have a long ways to go before I’m even close to perfect, but I’m a heck of a lot more experienced than I was when I took my first sewing class this spring!

If you are a loyal reader of my blog, you already know how much I love Modern Domestic. But can I just tell you one more time how much I love this place?

    I LOVE this! I am NOT a seamstress either so I am in envy of your hand made bag! It looks great! Awesome job :)
