Tote bag done...
The tote bag is done and I only have a few battle scars from the experience. I swear involuntary reactions suck! I feel like a pin cushion! I swear I hate working with pins, but they do their job.
The tote bag instructions were a little wonky, but I knew how to make a bag so I just fell back on those skills and did what I usually do when I make them and all turned out well. I am really glad that I got these fabrics, they turned out really well and I love the colors. I chose not to make the embroidered handle instead just making one from a 4" strip and folding in on itself it to make a nice 4 layer 1" strap. It will be a good bag for sewing retreats.
A look at the inside...I pieced the lining which worked fine for me. Once it's stuffed with stuff who sees the lining?
I also got my embroidery Eagle done for the SLOL quilt and I faux paper pieced the flag that goes under it. Once I get it trimmed out and sewn together, I'll post a pic for you to see.
