It was a no-brainer when the folks at Spoonflower asked if I wanted to make a social tote out of their fabrics. Well, almost a no-brainer. My one fear was getting totally lost in all the creatively unique designs in their marketplace–that part would be no easy decision! But I managed to whittle down a long list of favorites and am so pleased with how it turned out. My wonderful Mom ended up putting it together and did an awesome job! Thanks, Mom!

Here are links to the fabrics I ended up using.

And Noodlehead is doing a giveaway over at her blog, so if you haven’t already I think there’s still time to enter.

finding a social: update.

social tote in green architextures_carolyn friedlander

Hope you had a wonderful 4th!


I thought I’d share my architextures version of the social tote.


If you haven’t already seen it, make sure to check out Anna’s recent post on developing the social. Again, she is so amazingly talented and was such a blast to work with.


Thanks so much for all the interest in the pattern! I’ve really enjoyed opening my inbox each time to your kind words. And I’m sorry that some of you are having trouble finding it, but thanks for your incredible patience! With it being a new pattern it sometimes takes a little bit of time to find its way into the shops. While shops are awaiting their stock, I’m happy to get the pattern to you. Just send me a note, and we’ll get you set up. ( info [at] carolynfriedlander [dot] com )


This might be a good time for me to ask–would you want the option to buy the pattern directly from my website? How do you feel about having a downloadable option?

Because I’m curious, and I value your thoughts.

hatched black, gray, and ochre social.

I’ve been making quite a few of these. Some for me, some for friends, and some (/all) for fun. It’s time to start showing more of them off.


Although I’d love to keep this one to myself, she’s heading off to a friend.
