Noodlehead Super Tote

I started the Super Tote before Joshua was born and then I finished it in the week after.  (In 10 minute increments.)

My tote isn't very photogenic, but it really is a nice bag and I love using it.  I should have used a different interfacing but I used what I had on hand.

The navy and the blue floral are both sturdy cotton fabrics and the red floral I quilted to a piece of batting to make sturdier.

My favorite part of the bag is the yellow piping and stitching.  I made the piping myself and I'm happy with how it turned out.  The buttons were stitched on the bag as a last minute addition.  The top of the bag kept flopping down into the bag.

I quilted the front pocket with two threads (threaded through one needle) to make it stand out a bit more.

And the inside.  I am obviously using this as a diaper bag.  I opted to do a zipper pocket on the one side rather than the elasticized pockets on both.  I also opted out of the recessed zipper.  I wanted a bag I could easily put things in and out.  I was also worried that my prego brain wouldn't be able to handle the instructions.  I actually have another bag half finished and shoved in a box because I messed up the recessed zipper.

As usual the instructions were clear and easy to follow.  I thing it's a great bag and if the photos don't look that great the fault is all mine.  I would highly recommend this pattern.  (Not getting paid to say that, just a happy customer.)


  1. Very nice! I love the straps the most :) Did you use the same thread on the red? It looks thicker but that's probably just the angle.

  2. I do love this tote! I should really make myself a tote, but I think I would start with a real simple one. :)
