Laminated Buck Bag10:53 AM
My tote I've used every day this summer!
This tote has been awesome.
I use it as my combo purse and diaper bag pretty much every day.
When we moved to a tiny-one-stop-light town I started using a bike for all my errands and this sits on the front rack to hold all my junk.
This website is the only place I'm aware of where you can purchase this polka dot stag head print wearing glasses.
They carry it in the laminated cotton or canvas in four colors.
Despite being based out of Hong Kong, (I'm in the United States) I was surprised at how quickly I got the fabric.
This is the first time I've used laminated cotton and I read Amy Butler's tips which helped a lot before I got started.
I also put a piece of masking tape on the bottom of my presser foot so it wouldn't stick to the plastic of the fabric.
The bag is lined with a mustard twill and has the black color blocked pieces from canvas.
The pattern for the tote is from Anna at noodle-head.com.
I bought the pattern over a year ago and was excited to sew it up.
I think it's a great tote for all the storage it provides.
I pretty much use the three exterior pocket for my purse items--phone, keys, wallet, pens, etc.
Then the large tote is the diaper bag section in the middle.
The other exterior pocket is one big area I put papers in if I have any.
The laminated cotton has been great and durable.
You can't wash it in the machine which is a bummer, but it's been a good bag as a mom!
Fabric was given to me for review from modes4u.com.
