    Sue: I would take that 1st one on the left of the top picture. It is beautiful. Lucky person who gets it.

    Good idea getting ready for gift giving early. Saves so many headaches and rush jobs.

    Have a great weekend, Gwyn

    Thanks..I really like the idea of getting many things made up early and it has been so hot this summer..that being inside sewing makes sense..Will post more pics soon..have several more in the works

    Thanks...I am really trying to use up fabrics I no longer want to use in quilts and this is ideal way to do that ..and make Christmas gifts early!

    I am making them for gifts...will be nice to have so many things made up so early and also to use up so many fabrics I don't want anymore for quilts..
    What pattern did you use for this bag? Or do you have a tutorial for it?

    I used the same pattern as the SNAP BAG that I made so many of from the free tutorial on line and just made them larger..the sizes vary a little because it depends on the size of the piece of fabric I had to use but most are about 13 x 15" or so

    This week we are visiting family and all six of my husbands family are here so I gave the the totes and they seemed to love them..I was so pleased...even one who didn't think she wanted one changed her mind as she thought they were nicer than some she has so will replace one....they r easy and fun to make

    I love them - especially the long handles. Think I'll have to try some too.

    Sue you have a wonderful sense of color and design. I love your purses. I am wondering why I thought these were small purses made with the snap tape design? Huh...

    Thank you so much. This is so much simpler than the one I was going to make for my granddaughter. I'm going to do this one. Thanks again and your totes are so cute!!

    Sometimes you just have to sit in a chair and jog in order to get anywhere.
