Tammi Tries It! - Reversible Jumbo Tote

Courtesy of  Craft Passion

I am a complete and utter tutorial junkie. I've got a million bookmarked on my computer and a million more printed out and organized in binders. So, one day after coming home from the grocery store and shoving more plastic/paper bags underneath my already junky sink (see below), I decided no more!

I'd bookmarked this awesome tutorial for a reversible tote bag over at Craft Passion and obviously it was time I made some. Joanne of Craft Passion found some really cool fabric at Ikea so I decided to give their fabric section a try.  

And I'm so glad I did. I came across this Ullabella fabric of four colorful women sun bathing and immediately fell in love! And for only $4.99 a yard, it was a steal.  I had a couple of snafus (which is par for the course with me) but my seam ripper is my BFF and I finished up my tote just in time to go grocery shopping. All the cashiers at Trader Joe's loved my bag. And why wouldn't they? My shopping tote is amazeballs!  

Keep It Funky!
