Sew Alongs, Chamomile Tote

The Chamomile Tote Sew Along: Intro and Schedule

Welcome to the Chamomile Sew Along! The Chamomile Tote is a roomy tote that is both sturdy and stylish. The Chamomile Tote sewing pattern has two versions: Version A features an exposed top zipper, a double-zippered exterior pocket, and divided interior pockets. Version B has a simple snap closure, a single exterior pocket, and no interior pockets (though you can always add one!) Both versions have the same shape and basic look, but Version A is definitely a bit more of a challenge. 

I based the Sew Along on Version A, since it has more tricky techniques, but we will also demonstrate how to make Version B as well, with a little help from our other Sew Alongs. 

The Chamomile Tote may seem a bit intimidating since it uses more fabric than our other bags, but we will be breaking it down into really manageable steps that will be fully illustrated with detailed photos and a few videos. We hope you can join us!!
