How cool is this bag?!

New Leaf Folding ToteThis is the Heather Bailey New Leaf tote - I made it from Ikea fabric (cotton duck) and a couple of other scraps I had around (dotty for the contrast band and turquoise for the lining). 

It is SOOOO cool! It's really roomy and has a pocket on the front for when it's unfolded. 

Might have to make one for myself!

Front of the bag with large exterior pocket:

Reverse of the bag - fold from this side

Fold in the base and then the sides -

Fold up the bottom of the bag, leaving the flap of the pocket - 

Fold the top down to meet the edge - 

Nearly there! Fold the top right down and tuck in the handles -

And there it is, all cute and folded up!
Apparently, you make 3 or 4 of them and then there's a 'sash' pattern to join them all together. This one alone took about 3 hours so not sure I'm up for that!
