    This is for farmer girl. Remember you called me back in March when I was having so much trouble reading the instructions for the quilting part of the bag I was making? Well I finally finished it but it turned out too small. I really did like it but it is just not big enough for all my junk. Anyway, here is a picture of it. Also thanks for all your help. I am now working on my 2nd and larger bag.

    That's really pretty laserbeam. I've only made one tote and it was fun. I use it all the time. I really like the fabrics in your bag!

    Thank you all for the kind comments. The only thing I minded about making this bag was sewing all the diamonds. Very time consuming, but it was really hard to find double sided fabric in anything I liked. Hopefully I will be finished the next one soon.

    I love sewing bags and that's one of the really nice ones. I don't like sewing all the diamonds either.

    I started at 1 inch apart, then went to 1.5 inch apart and now quilt them 2 inches apart.

    Still takes a long time.

    But, really, that prequilted, prelined stuff is expensive and you don't have much variety to choose from.

    Now, make more!
