A custom, upcycled sweatshirt tote for a customer to give to her mother-in-law for Mother’s Day.

I turned the hand-warmer pocket on its side for an outside pocket.

 I also added a lining and a patch pocket on the inside.

If I had a large studio, I would love to teach classes. I think this would be fun for teens! You can find my original tutorial here.  Since then I have made a lot of variations in the handles. You can search through the blog for ideas.
