Here is a tote I made for a friend's birthday. I didn't have a pattern so I learned a lot about the order to sew things on this. The fabric has metallic highlights, and I outlined a lot of the leaves with a metallic thread with batting and buckram as a backing. The pocket is divided so that the small section can be used to hold a pen. I had to use two different fabrics for the lining since my green fat quarter wasn't large enough.

This was fun to make. I know additional ones will go more quickly.

Very nice, especially as done without a pattern.
