Hey everyone! Thanks for joining us again for our last part of our Multitasker sewalong. We are in the homestretch and our bags are almost finished!

Last week we left off with Step 15, where we finished the “box corner” of our bags. We now have our interior and exteriors all prepared and sewn, and the next step is to sew them together. We will make sure our exterior is right side out, with our corners pushed out nicely, and we will insert it inside of the lining which is inside out. We will now make sure our edges are matched up and we can pin our pieces together. I found that if there were any parts that weren’t lined up perfectly, I’d just make sure my front center panels were lined up and that extra slack in my fabric would be made up on my pocket panels – because our pocket panels will be rouched when our bag is finished and the straps are in place!!

In this post we are going to go over a couple tricky parts of making the the tote. This bag already has great instructions to follow but we are here to help if you have any problems along the way, so don’t hesitate to ask us any questions that you have about any part of the pattern.

Alright so by now you should have the inside of your tote done, which was pretty simple right? Okay now we are going to move on to constructing the outside of the bag, which looks much more complicated then it actually is.

Now you have 4 pieces to constrict the outside of your bag: 2 pocket pieces and 2 exterior pieces. They suggest that you use fusible facing on the exterior pieces to help your bag stand better.

Easy Pattern Alterations: the Violet Blouse


The Violet blouse from Colette is one of my all-time favorite patterns. I’ve already made it several times as-is from the pattern with no adjustments. I love it in dotted swiss and cotton voile. As per Colette’s usual M.O., Violet has a sweet vintage flair with it’s peter pan collar and gathered sleeves. However, calling on the latest spring trends for inspirations, I wanted to transform this classically styled pattern into something particularly on-trend for the coming season. This look was achieved by a few easy alterations that you can do too with minimal sewing experience.
