Tote Bag!

Posted on

I just finished my latest project and had to immediately take pictures and post about it.  This is a tote bag that my friend Jen and I made together (that is, she also made it and we did the steps together, coincidentally we also used the same fabric.)  This turned out to be fairly simple. Probably the most time consuming part was ironing on all the fusible interfacing.  Basically you make one simple bag, sew on the straps, make another bag for the lining, stitch it together, and turn it inside out.  To provide a little extra structure there is a fabric covered piece of cardboard placed at the bottom.

  6. well you know, we did watch ANTM last night and thanks to Tyra I realized that even though I am only 5’4″, I can still be foxy and fierce, so I struck a pose and smiled with my eyes.
