I have been participating in the Sew Spoiled Weekender Tote sew-a-long and I just completed my tote. This e-pattern was created by Leah Williams and was very clear and straightforward. Oh yeah, it's also free! I sewed my very first basic tote this past Easter for my daughters and nieces. I was able to go from that basic tote to this gorgeous one because the directions were so clear. Thanks Leah! I had a lot of fun. For more detailed info on my progress with the Weekender Tote please see my flickr photo stream. Also be sure to check out all of Sew Spoiled's e-patterns on Etsy and you can make this.
