Alright, I get it, some sewing projects are not as exciting as others. But then again, it depends on who you are. I have a favorite tote bag that I carry to work every day – carries my planner, journal, coffee, umbrella, cell phone charger cord, small tablet of paper and a pencil (I write notes to myself), shoes (I wear my running shoes from the parking lot to the office), and other miscellaneous stuff that girls carry. So what do you do when your tote bag doesn’t have pockets? Add them yourself! I got this idea off a Martha Stewart (don’t ya just love her?!) website. I went to Home Depot (shameless plug for one of my favorite stores) and bought a 77 cent apron, cut the ties off it, and sewed it into the tote bag. Perfect! Well, Martha Stewart said to use the ties to make bows to put around the tote bag handles so you can move the pockets from one bag to another. Well, I’m not much of bow-kind-of-girl so I just sewed the darn thing in there. If my other favorite tote bag needs pockets, I’ll buy another apron. So, a little advertisement for Home Depot, but let me tell you – these tote bag pockets are handy as a pocket on a shirt. Pun intended.
