Water bottle Tote

I made this Water Bottle Tote, a pattern from Sara of Radiant Home Studio, recently. I admit that had some trouble making this. I don't know if I am becoming dyslexic as I am aging or what? But I was just having a hard time trying to understand a couple of the steps. I emailed Sara and she helped me with it. I guess sometimes things just don't click in my head. Some of it was that I wasn't reading it correctly. I had sewed the inner dividers wrong because I was folding it the wrong way! Looks so simple to make, right? So I don't know why it ended up being a bit of a challenge.  Does that ever happen to you? Where some parts of instructions just don't make sense? Well I got 'er done and am happy with it. Thanks Sara for your help. I don't have 6 bottles of water (or other beverages) to use as models for the tote though.

Inside the tote there are divisions for 6 bottles. Or you can use this to hold other tall things like knitting needles, rulers, fabric rolled up, etc. I used some fancy stitches to stitch the dividers, even though you won't really see the stitches much.

  1. Happens all the time which is why I have embraced my seam ripper as my best friend.

  4. Sometimes I have to read and re-read many times. Usually the photos make more sense to me. This would make a great bag for carrying wine from the shop.

  5. Interesting bag. Your version is great. Sometimes I have to walk away from the project and go back to it later with fresh eyes. This usually helps me.

  6. I've been known to reread a line in pattern instructions many times, and aloud, until I figure out what I'm supposed to do. Reading aloud seems to help me and the last time I did it was yesterday. lol
    I like how your bag turned out. Pinned it. Have a good day!

  7. Reading instructions/directions is not my strong suit. I do much better in a class or with someone showin me the way. Love your blue tote and I can see lots of uses for this...i.e. Wine bottles from a discount buy. BLUEtiful dear...
