new jenna

The other day, as I was reading Anna's post on her newest Mesa Maker's Tote she rescued from her "not quite right prototype" pile, I was suddenly inspired to pick up my very first prototype of Jenna Tote and rework the areas I didn't like. Which actually wasn't too many, but it did mean swapping bright webbing handles for leather ones and re-cutting and re-swing the areas around zipper.


It's slightly smaller than my final version of this tote, but I absolutely love how adorably chunky this one turned out.



 My favorite feature of this tote is its zipper closure. I love how it makes the tote become sort of square-ish when full.


Oh, and it definitely feels great to have a lovely tote bag instead of adding to my ever growing not-quite-right prototype pile. Thanks for the inspiration, Anna.

Hope you're having a fantastic day. Svetlana

  1. I like your revisions too! Very nice, I just may have to try it too. I love leather handles but the fabric ones have held up stupendously and I have used my Jenna Tote for two different trips and you can trust that my Jenna Tote was stuffed full and did beautifully and everyone I encountered loved it! Nice job Svetlana! Keep up the great work you are an inspiration.

  3. It looks great Svetlana! Do you make your leather handles? I have a difficult time finding accessories for bags (hardware, handles) and love the ones you've used here.

  4. Eep! I love the peek of Happy Go Lucky when you open up the zipper. : )
