A New Tote

Well hello all.  I am afraid the need to only think about bags is not really over yet.  It has been a slow summer.  I am still working on those scraps and have a few of these in varying stages of being done.  Unfortunately I am working on the mats and forgot to line up fabric for the back.  So when I get closer to the bottom of this scrap pile I will look for backing.

In the mean time so I can have a break from the scraps I have started a new denim bag for a friend.  I have most of the pieces cut and am working on a couple pieces for the gusset and handles.  Since I am limited in this fabric I am having to find pieces that work.  My goal is to be putting it together, at least started, tomorrow.

I also made a tote in a sew along in one of the Yahoo groups I am in.  I really like this pattern.  It is called the "Mill House Inn Tote" at the Moda Bake Shop.  here  It was a good pattern for a quick tote.

I am off to the denim bag pieces.  But I do think bedtime is going to come early tonight.
