My New tote

Just wanted you to know that I have been doing a little sewing. Between quilting things and sewing on binding you have to do a little something else.
This pattern was in the Aug. 07 McCall's quilting magazine and I had made one for another swap with a gal on the Carol Doak group. Wanted to make one for ME. So with a package of Charms of the new Lakeside collection of Thimbleberries I put this together.
It really isn't as easy as it looks with putting fusible fleece on the backs of both the front and the lining it makes for a pretty thick sew.

One nice thing is it take a little magnet on each side as a closer.

Nice a big . Holds a book that I like to take along to the beauty parlor, the doctor's office which we have many to visit.

So that's my show and tell for today.

Eileen I love your bag. It looks like Spring. Which I guess we are all getting anxious for. You did your usual great job. I like those little Charms. I have made some cute gifts with them.

It's lovely -- I have to look and see if I have that magazine. If so, I have some charms that are begging to be used :0).

That's a cute bag, Eileen. The Ballerina was thinking we should make a bag for her teacher's birthday. She's really eager to learn how to sew!
