I am sew excited!! As most of you know from previous blogs, the sister and I took a "perfect tote" class on Monday. I was really excited about it, especially after I got my fabric. The demo they had at the store was with fabrics I would term, well, a bit "old" for me. However, the fabric I got was right up my alley and some of my favorite colors to boot, brown and blue!! We were supposed to choose 6 different designs and thankfully there were just enough in my colors! I got my fabric early so it made the waiting even harder!! But finally the day arrived. It passed quickly because I'd worked the night before and so I slept most of the day!! I actually overslept a bit, go figure huh? (Like I'm ever on time!!)
When we got there, the sis and I set up and got to work. The construction is rather easy, there are just a lot of steps. However, the end product is sew worth it!! We weren't able to finish the bag at the class because it was getting to late. I had to finish it at home, but that's ok, it got done! It gives me such a feeling of accomplishment to be able to construct something like this. I was so happy with the results! The bag it's self is HUGE!! But you know how the sis and I are about big bags...we relish them! Here are a few pictures for your enjoyment!!
