|Tiny Tinker Tote - Back|
I made another Tinker Tote! This time though I reduced the size of the pattern by 25% for a smaller bag; not so much a carry-all tote but more like a handbag. Printing the pattern at 75% does not alter the construction process and although I was fairly familiar with the instructions I did refer back to the online class several times just to re-acquaint myself with some of the steps, in particular the zip pocket instructions.

Notes for the reduced size Tinker Tote:
~ Reduce the width but not the depth of the pockets. My pocket is only a few inches deep and a little bit more depth would have been handy for a useful pocket.
~ The binding on the original size bag is a little awkward. On the reduced size bag it is a lot more awkward. Lifting my sewing machine up and out of the sewing table insert would have helped (I didn't think of that at the time and it probably would have saved me from muttering a few choice words).
