Color Block Super Tote

Noodlehead   Color Block Super Tote pattern

It’s mine!  haha.  Seriously though, this one I’m keeping too!  Call me crazy.  Not sure if I can part with any of them.  I was chatting with Dana the other night and told her I needed to make a ‘Dana’ style Super Tote.  Something fun and color blocked.  Hope I sort of accomplished that!

It took me way longer than usual to pick out the colors for the exterior.  Kind of intimidating.  I really wanted to incorporate yellow, but held off.  Maybe I’ll make another version with the yellow.  Can’t stop!

This was also the lining I surgically removed from my last Super Tote when I changed my mind and made a whole new lining.  I was happy to have that part already completed!

    Looks greatI guess I need to add another pattern to my to do list. I love the colors, very summery and yes, I do see “Dana” in it.

    Love this tote! Just bought fabric for myself. Do you have a similar tote that is shallower then this one?

    • Anna 06.13.2013 at 4:36 pm #

      Thank you! Hmm, I can’t think of a shallower version, but you might want to pop around on my tutorials and pattern pages and see if you can find one that you like. :)

    spectacular! those colors are great, and each time I see you make another, I keep thinking how I need to get my act together to make one. it’s too bad my to do list is so long right now…

  18. Kathryn L 06.14.2013 at 7:48 am #

    Love it! May just have to make one too – don’t blame you for keeping this little gem!

    I see that you have the elastic pockets on both sides on this one, great idea! I’ll have to mimic that in one of my next ones. It’s very interesting picking out the fabrics for the totes. I find I have to problem with the exterior choices, and then I get bogged down with the lining choices – does this go, will this go better, do I have enough!

    this might be my favourite yet!

    So, when you use the linen, are you interfacing your pieces or using canvas as an underlining?

    • Anna 06.17.2013 at 9:26 am #

      For this one I used interfacing. SF101 first, then Craft Fuse 808. :)

    Ooo… makes me feel summery!

  23. jeifner 06.22.2013 at 1:34 pm #

    Wonderful. Those sundials are great, I thought they looked nice online but when I saw them in person-so pretty! Yes to architectures and Lotta as well :)

  24. Sheila K. 06.24.2013 at 4:38 pm #

    Like the different take on the handles…is that in the pattern?

    • Anna 06.24.2013 at 4:54 pm #

      thanks Sheila. The handles are the same as the other Super Totes handles I’ve made, but yes, all is included in the pattern. :)
