Noodlehead, Super Tote

My favorite sewing projects are always bags! One size fits all and each one is fun to create. At the end of the summer, I started searching for a teacher tote to take to school. I needed a tote to carry my grade book, notebook and calendar stuff. I found Noodlehead's Supertote, perfect for any teacher!

I did not have enough fabric to make it when I looked through my stash, so I found all of my favorite scraps and started to piece them together. Most of them are out-of-print fabrics from Amy Butler collections. I also took a shortcut and used canvas webbing for my straps. Last but not less, the bottom of the tote was not sturdy enough so I added plastic to the base.

The Super Tote design is the perfect size for a teacher tote. I can store two 1.5" notebooks inside. There is also a slip pocket on the outside perfect for my badge and pens and an interior elastic slip pocket for post-its and other office supplies. I love that the top has a zipper closure, however, I have not use…
