sew awesome craft: Hogwarts House Tote Bag


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.

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.
