I could feel the anxiety rising this week...
I was itching to keep stitching but my fabric stash is still pretty non existent so desperate times call for desperate measures........
I raided my linen cupboard and found this old doona cover which has hardly ever been used and is in excellent condition.
I decided to pair it with the left over denim from the skirt I made last week and make another Tote.
(sorry the colours are a bit off as the photos were taken in low light with my ipad)
I used the same Tote pattern as I did with my Vintage Tote that was by Debbie Shore but I modified it a little this time to incorporate the two fabrics on the outside and the straps down the sides as well as a pocket on the inside.
I forgot to do a row of top stitching at the top of the bag where the flower fabric meets the little strip of denim before I put the straps on but I did add it to the bottom.
I used my usual method of stitch and unpick for most of this project and I think the main problem may have been that I was somewhat distracted by the eye candy on TV ;)
I am really happy with how this Tote came together quite quickly. My confidence is growing and I like that I can "tweak" designs now to suit my needs.
I added a pocket to the inside that was large enough to hold my phone, a note book (and my big bunch of keys!)
I was also really pleased with how successful I was at lining things up this week!
Thank you for stopping by my blog today. I really appreciate your kind comments and words of encouragement.
I will be sharing my bag on the following linky parties this week.
