I made it Monday: two new tote bags

Hello, and welcome to another week! Although I have a lot of on-going projects (I always have more on-going projects at the same time that I can ever finish) but all I managed to complete this weekend were two tote bags.

Here they are:

First I made this pineapple tote bag for summer. I've been meaning to sew something with pineapples for a while now, and this fabric gave me the perfect opportunity:

It's lined with a matching green fabric and I have added an inside pocket (when possible I prefer to have a pocket for my cell phone and/or keys).

And then I finished sewing this stars tote bag too:

Again lined, this time in gray, and with a pocket too.

To get an idea of how they are made, you can check my 20-minutes lined tote bag tutorial.

And these were the highlights of my crafty weekend. Have a great week, wherever you are. Stay safe, and don't forget to check out the other bloggers' awesome Made it to Monday posts:
