    three more beach themed totes-done

    Here we go again. Think I got the pics downsized now. The blue turtle and the salmon/yellow are the Bo Tuck pattern that I enlarged and left the side ties off. The blue one I also changed the tab closing. The lavender shell tote is from McCalls Quilting magazine and I also enlarged that pattern and made the handles a bit different. I am having fun making totes!

    Very nice! Love them all. What size did you come up with when enlarging the bow tuck? I considered this and couldn't get the length/width balanced.

    I enlarged it to the main fabric top portion = 10 x 19 (2)
    bottom contrast fabric = 7 x 19 (2)
    lining fabric = 16 1/4 x 19 (2)
    pellon/fusible etc = 16 1/4 x 19 (2) for outside fabric
    = 16 x 19 (2) for lining fabric
    Then I cut the box corners 3" x 3"
    I did not change the 19" width, just the height. I also used the same size pockets inside and out. By not adding the side ties, it allows much more room.

    Hope it helps!

    Thanks! I put those clips in for your keys-I can't stand digging in my bag for my keys. This way, they are always where they should be.
