My Tohoku Bag

Have you seen the “create with me” projects on Ucreate?  Each month Kari (at Ucreate) picks a new project for everyone to make.  Every month I say I’m going to do it, but I never get it done.  Well, this month I got it done and I just love how it turned out!

This months project was the Tohoku Bag from I Am Momma – Hear Me Roar.  She had a great tutorial on her blog for FREE!  I whipped this bag out in 2 days, but I would say this is an intermediate project. Luckily I have made several bags before, so I have the basic idea of bags down.  I was going to use this for a purse, but it is a little big for me, so it will probably be my church bag instead.  You will notice that I put pockets on both sides of the bag, she only did pockets on one side.  My straps are also a little longer than she made hers.  Other than that, I just followed her tutorial.  I can’t wait to use it now!  Have you made something with a great free tutorial online?  Please share!  I’m sure there are more I need to find.

    Nice Job Holly! What a cute bag. I’m sure I’ve used other online tutorials, but I can’t think of them right now. I’ll pass them along if I find a good one!

    Love your fabric choice and your bag looks gorgeous! I might have to make a bunch. 🙂 I have made quite a few things using online tutorials. My favorites are from MADE and No Big Dill. I’m probably forgetting some others and I promise it’s not intentional. I also have a few free tutorials on my blog. 🙂
