Fabric Friday - Tohoku Tote

It's finally time for another Fabric Friday!  Ever since I saw the 2011 Convention-exclusive Simply Scored tote, I wanted to make one.  However, my sewing skills wasn't quite up to snuff yet.  Then I saw THIS TUTORIAL on Pinterest, and saved it for that "one day."  Well, that "one day" came and I decided to try it.
I didn't follow the tutorial exactly.  I improvised and tried to make it easier on myself.  Above is the front.  Below is the backside.
Here is the closeup.
The front and back pieces are essentially two separate extra-long fat quarter pieces that come in the package.  So measuring there.  Then for the other pieces, I didn't bother to iron the fabric, I left it folded and just cut along the crease lines.  I'll try to make a pictorial when I make another one.  Anyway, this really wasn't all that hard to make and I am so pleased with the result.

Since Stampin' Up! is having a giant sale on some retired fabric right now for $0.99 a package (3 extra-long fat quarters per package), I'm getting a bunch of fabric and make some totes and bags to sell.  If you're interested, shoot me an email!
