Cat’s meow reversible tote bag

Cat's meow tote bag 07

Cute and functional!  I whipped up this sweet reversible tote bag over the weekend and have been swooning over the cute kitties all week.  It makes me smile every time I look at it!  This is the third Gather Here tote bag I’ve made using the pattern from their “sewing basics” class that I took last winter.  I use the first one everyday as my lunch bag for work, so I can attest to its great functionality and durability.  Yay for more bags!  A woman can never have enough, in my opinion.  : )

Project details:

Pattern: Gather Here reversible tote bag.  (I don’t think the pattern is available online.)

Fabric: Cuzco by Kate Spain for Moda (pink/orange print); Pet Park by Robert Kaufman (cat print)

Modifications: None

Level of crafty satisfaction: Too cute, love it!

I went a little overboard with the photoshoot, but really, can one ever get enough cute cat fabric?  I didn’t think so.  : )  Enjoy the photos!
