Sewing a Rainy Day Tote Bag

I made another tote bag with a simple little design on it. It's been raining a lot lately so the cloud is sad. I love humidity and sunshine! So poor summer weather makes me very sad.
Sad cloud.
Happy jellyfish.

There is something so satisfying about turning this....


Into this.....

Sad Cloud Happy Jellyfish

I used natural coloured Cotton Drill fabric for the bag, grey felt for the shapes, black cotton for the rain and legs and embroidery cotton for the faces.
Here is a basic pattern I made using measurements from a bag I bought years ago.

 Captions for everything!
I filmed myself making this one, not sure how the footage will turn out yet....
