Drum roll please! I have chosen the FIRST EVER sewhooked Sew Awesome Craft!
I’ve made a lot of online craft friends over the years, and I’m always excited when they share their talents with me. One of these wonderful people, hermione_jean on Livejournal, shared a bag with me that has become one of my absolute favorites to carry around.
She then wrote a tutorial so you can make one for yourself!
This bag has particular significance for me because she has incorporated my Hogwarts House patterns into the design.
I proudly present the the first EVER sewhooked Sew Awesome Craft: Hogwarts House Tote Bag Tutorial, by hermione_jean. Also check out the variation for a Hogwarts Unity Tote Bag.
What do I love about this bag? Well, to start, it’s huge, with a square bottom and awesome long straps for throwing over your shoulder. It’s got a fantastic harlequin design, created with different colored blocks of fabric, with a Hogwarts House crest pieced front and center. The tutorial itself is just COOL and the bag looks like a pinwheel before it’s actually finished.

This is the bag she made for me! Caw Caw Ravenclaw!
I hope you enjoy hermione_jean’s awesome bags as much as I do!
If you make a Sew Awesome Craft or any pattern, craft or recipe from sewhooked, I’d love to see a photo. Email me or add it to the sewhooked flickr group.
