Another Pint-Size 241 Tote

Back in February I shared the smaller version of the Noodlehead 241 tote that I made for my youngest. When my oldest's 6th birthday rolled around in June, she asked me to make one for her, too. Just like last time, I let my daughter choose the fabrics, with a little guidance :) It turned out really cute.

The fabric is from the Happy Jungle collection by Allison Cole for Camelot Cottons.
  • Jungle Animals in Turquoise
  • Happy Sky in White
  • Diamond Ikat in White/Aqua

I stuck with shrinking the pattern to 75% and then sized the strap to fit my daughter. And I once again skipped the magnetic snap closure and interior pockets. Keep it simple.

I also sewed up a Michelle Patterns dumpling pouch to match.

This is my fourth 241 tote and my sixth dumpling pouch... am I stuck in a rut or what?!? It doesn't bother me... These patterns have served me well, and I'm sure I am nowhere near done with them :)

Ack! This is so cute! I JUST made another dumpling this morning before breakfast!!! This is my 14th!!! I made one for each of my 12 stamp club members last year for Christmas...they were a great hit, too, so TFS!

The tote turned out amazing, perfect size for her. I must try one of those dumpling pouches, I just looked at the link and the construction is so clever.

The bag and pouch are delightful. She chose awesome fabrics. ;) And I know all about making something dozens of times. If the fabrics are fun, it's always new. :)

I don't think it's a rut when you find a pattern you like and it turns out so well!
