Here's a pic of the Firefly Tote I made during the sew-along!


Hello First name / there,

Welcome to the fourth and final week of the Firefly Tote Sew-Along! Thanks so much for sewing along with me! I really hope you had fun. I loved hearing from you and seeing what you made! Thank you!


Last time (Week 3), I put together a video on making the lining, assembling the tote, and reinforcing the handles. Here's a link to that newsletter


This week is the link wrap up!!! Please scroll down for links to all the Firefly Tote Sew-along newsletters, they're linked under the “Missed an email?” heading. 


In case you missed last week's rivet tutorial link, I wanted to share it again in today's newsletter. I get asked a lot about rivets, so here's the link again:

It might be helpful to read through the post again if you've seen it before. At the bottom of the post, I have links to shop(s) where I purchase rivets (my most used rivet size is an 8mm head with a 6mm post, but I keep 8mm post lengths on hand for thicker projects/leather)! I also include a link to the hole punching tool I used in the video.
