I ran across the Convertible Tote pattern from Mrs. H. I wasn’t sure I liked it, to be honest. I’m not a fan of backpacks at all. But! My mom asked for one. I went through a couple patterns and decided that I really liked the techniques and construction of the Convertible and downloaded it and set out to cut it out.
I knew I wanted to use this GORGEOUS mandala pattern from Micklyn on Spoonflower. It’s the perfect bright blue for Spring. I also used cork (which I always order from Sew Sweetness) as the accent. I am getting more and more comfortable working with it!
