I have been keeping myself very busy, but the projects I have been working on have to do with Christmas, and since I want them to be surprises, I will not post pictures of them here. One thing I have made is a new purse. My old purse was wearing out and it just wasn't large enough to hold what I wanted to keep with me. Monday, while looking at the blog, I am Momma-Hear me Roar at this link http://iammommahearmeroar.blogspot.com/, I found a pattern and a tutorial for a Tohoku Tote. Looked like a purse to me.
Anyway, went to Walmart, bought some fabric and iron-on pellon, came home, cut it out and got most of it done. I finished it yesterday. I made one change in that I made a long shoulder strap, because that is what I prefer, and I cut the hardware from my old purse to use for this purse. Here are the pictures outside and in. This was the first time I have made a tote/purse. I have made dresses, coats, even swim suits, but this is the first for this kind of project.
