Firefly Tote Sew-Along: Week 3


Hello First name / there,

Welcome to the third week of the Firefly Tote Sew-Along! Thanks for joining me today!


Last time (Week 2), I put together a video on assembling the exterior and making the drawstring closure. Here's a link to that newsletter. 


This week we're assembling the lining and then putting everything together! 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 I'll be making the lining, assembling the bag, and then going over the different options we have for reinforcing the handles.


After this week you will have a complete tote! Pretty great, right?! Next week I'll be doing a link wrap up and answering any remaining questions! If you have any questions that I've haven't touched on yet please reply to this email and let me know! I'm happy to cover them in the next newsletter. :)
