Finished my tote…

I can tell I haven’t been sewing to much lately. It took me a couple of hours to remember how to make a reversible tote. For the life of me I couldn’t remember that you have to sew right sides together and leave a small opening to turn it. I thought….well I was wrong so it didn’t matter, I finally remembered. So without any more words here’s my tote…

100_1926 Mike being silly but he was impressed with my tote.

I used fabric I had gotten from my Aunt Pat. I love the colors but it’s a bit drab so I think tomorrow I’ll make a brighter one. I feel tons better tonight after just puttering the day away. Mama did come and visit, oh how I love it when she does that. Then daddy and I went for a walk and I love that too. So today was a great day. One more day off to putter and putze and then back to real life.

Today I got the most comments I have gotten in ages, just a perfect day for them. You guys just seemed to know I needed them, thank you so much. From the bottom of my heart, thank you!

So now it’s time to go and see what’s on TV. Maybe something good tonight, I can hope. Take care my friends. Have a great evening and God Bless!

It is so beautifully stitched! I love the use of the center design fabric on both sides! I hope you understand what i am saying because i can't seem to describe that any better.

I'd love to see a picture of you going shopping with it!
