Sew Spoiled Cabrio Tote Sew Along Closed

Happy New Year!
After reflecting on 2010 Sew Spoiled blog posts, I realized that my favorite posts were about giveaways, tutorials and the Weekender Tote sew along!
The sew along being my absolute favorite! I would love to start a new sew along with you!
We will make the Sew Spoiled Cabrio Tote together!
Here is the Time line...

Gather Fabric and supplies (Step1)- - - - - - Jan. 18- Feb. 1 (2weeks) 
Cut out the pieces (Step 2)- - - - - - - - - - - - -Feb. 2- Feb. 8 
Straps and Outer Shell Panel gathered (Step 3-6) -- - Feb. 9- Feb. 15 

Finish outer shell and make pockets (Step 7-8) - - - - - Feb. 16- Feb. 22 
Magnet Clasp and Finish Lining (Step 9-11) - - - - - - Feb. 23- March 1 
Finish the Tote (Step 12-14)- - - - - - - - March 2- 8
The pattern is available in my Etsy Shop!
If you finish before the deadline great! Post your work early, it might inspire someone else to finish!
If you fall behind the group that is ok too try to catch up, some weeks are easier than others.   
Please take a photo or two each week of your progress and load them to the new Flickr group Sew Spoiled Cabrio Tote Sew Along If you do not have a flickr account it is free and you will find that there is an incredible sewing world at your finger tips!!!
There are some ground rules...
1. Have Fun! Make your sewing space relaxing and make sure you have everything you need at your finger tips. (a working machine, seam ripper, new needles, etc.)
2. Take at least one picture of each section of the sew along.
(Gathering, Cutting, Step 2, Step 3-6, Step 7-8, Step 9-11 Step 12- 14. a total of 7 pictures) Post it at
Sew Spoiled Cabrio Tote Sew Along.
3. Do Not give up! Ask if you need help!
4. Sew Spoil yourself with a treat of some kind after you complete each part of the sew-a-long. (Ice Cream, bubble bath, long walk or something that you really enjoy doing.)
Please let me know if we need to make any changes. I will be making a Cabrio Tote with the group, posting pictures and writing about our progress right here!
If you are in sign up on
Flickr and post a comment here.

Can’t wait to get started!

I would really love to make another cabrio tote! I love mine. Count me in. I made up a bunch of your wristlets for gifts this Christmas. I planned to post about them this week so now I can mention this sew-a-long too. I will be sure to include a link. Thanks for taking this on again!

Do you think you could make a button for the sew along so we could post it on our blogs?
