    First attempt at this ever....

    I am so excited.... I am not a sewer (except quilts). Several people posted a link to MS site for a tute to make a tote..and it looked kinda easy..so I gave it a try tonight. I do have some boo boo's in it...BUT nothing major. The next one I make will be a bigger one... just to try different sizes out. Thanks for looking..... HAPPY NEW YEARS everyone...

    I watched that tute last night and I think you did a great job. I have made mayt totes and am now excited about this new method. I love you fabric choices.

    Looks great. I haven't made a proper tote yet (did make a denim lunchbag for my husband....but is hardly toteworthy). Love the fabrics you have chosen.

    Nicely done. Good fabric choices.

    I watched the tute the other night and it is definitely on my 'to do list'. It's a great way to use up bits of leftover charms and looks really easy to put together.

    I like it, I like it! Just the right size for me right now. Some days, I need a big bag, but these days, I like one a little smaller, because I have some shoulder pain going on.

    Congrats on making your first tote--It looks just great! Your colors are lovely. Those things you are calling minor boo boo's, they are "custom design modifications"!

    Looks great. Looks like the tote Missouri Star Quilt Co had on YouTube that I watched last night. Thanks for sharing. I want to make one.

    Is this the tute from Missouri Quilt? Watched it yesterday, and it is on my to-do list.
