Firefly Tote Sew-Along: Week 2


Hello First name / there,

Welcome to the second week of the Firefly Tote Sew-Along! I'm excited you're here!


Last time (Week 1), I put together a video on fabric selection and cutting & interfacing which I hope you found helpful. Here's a link to that newsletter. We also completed the front pocket!


This week we're onto more fun - we're putting together the exterior and making the drawstring closure. The video is included below. I've put timestamps in the video's description so if you only want/need to watch a certain part, click on those timestamp links. 

Lastly, if you haven't picked up your Firefly Tote pattern, click the button below.

In this week's video we're putting the exterior together and making the drawstring closure. It's fun to see the exterior come together!


After this week you should have the exterior assembled and the drawstring closure all set to go. Next week we'll be working on the lining and putting everything together!
