I have today and tomorrow off. YAY! Though I've gotten quite a few things finished, I still have much to do. I may have put more things on my list than anyone could possibly get done in 4 days, but by having so many things on my list, I am able to pick and choose what project I want to work on next. haha! There is a method to my madness. I have one huge project to complete...and will work on smaller projects when I need a break from that.
I finished this tote bag this morning. It's a Mother's Day gift for my Aunt/Godmother Bev. I started it yesterday but it took much longer than I thought it would...or that it needed to. Probably because I was making it up as I went along, and had to stop and think. Which hurts. The next one will go much faster. I hope. ohyeah. I know. It's late. For a very important date. ohmy!
It measures about 12 x 16 inches, has a flat bottom, and a little loop for keys sewn into one side seam. Inside, there are pockets. One side has pockets that go all the way across...on the other side, there is one pocket higher up...for keys or cell phone or whatever you think you might need easy access to. And, it matches the pincushion I made for her last year for Mother's Day. See it here.
Aunt Bev sews and knits...always totes something along wherever she goes, so I think she'll like it.
There's a folded strip of fabric that is sewn into the seams that runs across one side...divided by stitching lines into 5 pockets.
(the pocket is on straight, just looks crooked)...
Update on other projects...I finished the hand-sewing on the baby blush quilt and will be washing/drying the two quilts for Joyce today. Cannot show them until she's received them. They are too dang cute...just sayin'.
I'm sure I'll be adding to this later.
Don't forget...DWTS tonight!
