Two Everyday Totes

Goodbye 2017 and thank you for the many lessons over the past year!

One of my goals is to be busier and I wanted to make something special for my Aunt, a person I admire greatly from her loving and proactive spirit. After puttering around their website, I found Purl Soho’s “Everyday Tote” pattern.

I made my own binding using Cotton + Steel’s “Fiskers” in lavender.


The pattern calls for some beautiful cotton webbing handles, but I decided to use some of the extra canvas to make handles. I also put binding on one tote’s handles, and really like the look.


The sewing took under an hour for each bag. I used a combo of Aurifil thread and Gutermann.




Cricket loves the camera.


The contrast between the gold corduroy and the blue canvas is one of my favorite parts of each tote.


I ran out of the Cotton + Steel binding and found some of this extra binding, and though why not? I’m pretty happy with the pop of color and how it adds more to the tote’s character.




I highly recommend this, and any pattern, from Purl Soho!

Thanks for stopping by all year. It has been a monumental year for Brambleton Threads. This year we not only became an LLC, had our first gallery showing, but also completed a successful Kickstarter.  We are grateful for the continued support on the blogging communties, Twitter, and from Kickstarter.

For any new eyes stopping by, thank you and enjoy!

Have a calm and safe end of the year.
