Thanks partially to NorBanaquilts , I have a new tote bag. I had a V. Bradley one, but it is just about worn out, and after seeing NorBanaquilts beautiful totes, I decided to give it a try. I had found some sale material at the Ben Franklin craft store near my home and loved the way it looked. I got the only piece of it they had thinking it would make a nice pocketbook. Then on another visit, found a piece that also had gold running through it and decided it would coordinate nicely. Was organizing my sew room the other day and found a piece of lavender that worked great as a lining. So thank you NorBanaquilts for the push I needed to make this great tote.
