My Friday Night Sew-in Results!

I wasn't sure that I was going to get anything done last night.  I had to watch 'Flashpoint' (love that show!) before I started, but was afraid that I wouldn't have the energy and/or ambition once I turned the tv off.  But, I did.  I had the energy.  In fact, I stayed up into the wee hours.  Not sewing all the time...had an hour long visit on the phone with my sister in Alaska. 

Anyway.  Here's the scoop...I wanted to make a bag that wasn't completely open at the top (like a tote), but one that didn't have a snap or button to undo.  So.  I about a foldover top?  Sounded great to me.  I wasn't sure on size, so I went smaller rather than larger to start with.  Here's what I came up with...about 10" wide by 10" high up to the foldover.

We shall see how this works out. 

Have a great weekend!

You did a wonderful job on the tote and nice design.
I need to make one with lots of pockets, need to take a class for those type.

Looks great! I guess the test will be how quick one can access what's inside... I've had some purses that I disliked because it was too difficult to get at things. This design you made should be easy!
