    I just finished this tote...I'm glad to. It wasn't all that fun to put together. I may try again, but we'll see.

    Love the fabrics you chose! What a nice, bright tote. I'm interested in your comments, as my LQS has that same pattern as a class I've been considering. What has held me back is my wondering how useful another tote can be (some aren't user-friendly).

    I just saw this pattern at a LQS. I love what you did with it! I just made an oversized tote to carry on the plane when I go to New Zealand, but it is too big for everyday use, I really like yours, perfect size. Was it hard?

    Take the class...there were a few things I wished I could have gotten some help but I did finish. I think this would be a great diaper bag.

    A few times I felt like I was going to pull my hair out but all in all it wasn't that bad.

    I agree with Birdie, too.....if you can take a class, DO! I, too, was a little balder by the time I got the first one done.

    You did a great job!!!!

    Was the center interior pocket hard to put in? It looks like it would be!

    Thanks everyone! It was a bit challenging (sp) but I'm glad to have finished it. I made for an older woman at my LQS, she's a hand sewer so she asked me to make it for her. Now that I've gotten one under my belt I'll probably make myself one. :) :)

    Love the fabric! Awesome job. I am in the midst of making my second one of these. They are intense but a lot of fun and really nicely put together when done.

    Very nice, but like someone said earlier, out of my league. I do have a tote I am going to try to make this weekend at a retreat if I get feeling better. :roll:
