241 Tote . . . again

This is my third time making the 241 Tote pattern, and I'm still loving it.  I must admit that I don't buy a lot of patterns, there are just so many great ones available for free, and I often just come up with my own designs.  And I often get free patterns through testing or reviewing.  But it is definitely less stressful to work with a tested pattern, and this is one of those unique designs that I didn't think I could reproduce without the instructions.

I used a denim for the main fabric, a coordinating solid for the lining, and a print from Terrain for the pockets.  I added hardware to the straps, and otherwise stuck to the pattern.

Have you thought about purchasing this pattern?  Noodlehead is having a sale ~ get it for $2 off for today and tomorrow only.

Linking up to {Sew} Modern Monday, Manic Monday, and Fabric Tuesday.

Your bags are fabulous! I like your addition of the hardware on the straps. I just finished making a few of these totes and it really is a great pattern.

They all look very pretty. The 241 tote bag has been on my wishlist. I might have to get the pattern soon. :)

These are lovely. I'm seriously thinking about buying the pattern. I haven't made a bag for ages and would love to try one of these.

This is gorgeous fabric. I love the IT shop but can never will myself into buying anything. If I did, though, it would be a bundle of Rendevous. Yes please!
