    New tote bag!

    I am constantly toting sewing projects back and forth from one place to another. This will keep it all in one spot while traveling.

    Very Nice. I made a diaper bag last month and decided I needed a tote too. I like yours.

    Love your choice of fabrics. Very well done. I always make the insides of my bags light so I can find things.

    I really like this. Would you please tell me where you got the fabric on the outside of the bag? Great job. To me you can never have enough totes and purses. Lol

    OMGoodness!! I love the fabrics.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    I was a little scared of making bags at first too and when they are lined and have many pockets, they can be quite confusing! Just take the directions slowly one step at a time and don't sew it until you can actually SEE how it's going to go together. I have made several only to turn the lining in and realized I sewed it backwards! It's all about learning. You can do it!

    I bought both fabrics at a discount store called Mill Ends but I believe the fabric was Bednartex.

    Lovely colors! I have been making my purses with light lining interiors - makes it easier to find stuff! Keep up the good work.

    I used Pellon 808 Craft Fuse. Worked great.
