I have signed up for the facebook Simplicity tote bag sew along.
I brought the pattern and cut out the pieces for the tote but then I got scared as I have only ever made bags through tutorials on the net. It looked more complicated than I was prepard for so I chose the easier option, the other bag in the pattern envelope :)
I chose it because it is ver similar to the buttercup bags I have made.
It was a great chance for me to use the wonderful Michael Miller fabric I brought a while back but I wanted the right project before useing.
Here is the 2nd bag, I put fusible interfacing in this to to pad it a bit :)
I even put a little zip pocket into the lining, it is not very big so ideal for dropping some spare chang in lol.
This was the 1st bag I did, I LOVE the fabric and colours, Im going back to the quilt shop in Cromford to buy some more of this as I have had 2 orders after taking it up to my son's school :)Lime green lining :)
