Sew Sunday - Tote bag

Left - Full Bag, closed flap...... Right - Opening, red lining

To start, I'd like to thank the Fabulous Sheila for awarding me one of her Major Awards! She named me her "Half My Age Twin". Thanks, darling! I'm honored for the award.

Now onto Sew Sunday! I finally got my bum in gear and dragged out the sewing machine again. Many frustrated seams, twists and a random extra piece that was supposed to have gone somewhere - I finally have a tote! This was a difficult first whole piece. It had interfacing, pleats, and rounded seams. Add that to pretty thick, sturdy fabric - Frustration central. I love the end result though. I hope to get a bunch of use from it.


  1. Your tote looks fantastic. That fabric is so fun. I wish I had your mad sewing skills :)

  2. That tote is great! You could make some as giveaways too. :)

    It's super cute, I'm sure you'll get lots of use out of it!

  3. that print is awesome! i always love the moment when i realize that a coat or bag has fun-colored lining.

  4. Whoa! You made that?! Wow, you're a crafty one, that's for sure!

    Call Me Ishmael

  5. Congratulations on the award!! Very cool! And the tote is super cute! Very awesome that you're sewing your own stuff, and I love the print on that fabric! :)


Thanks for reading. Got something to say? I'd love to hear it!
