Last summer I dabbled in making tote bags. This one I really enjoyed creating because the fabric is so awesome. Fall colors are my favorite plus images of crows, scarecrows, pumpkins, sunflowers etc make me smile.
I used a heavy jeans thread for top-stitching. The blue is a heavy jeans fabric. Inside the bag is woven interfacing and a heavy fleece that keeps the bag from crumpling (is that a word?). Both are fusible products by Pellon.
Inside has pockets and D-rings for hooking on key chains or what ever. There are so many free patterns and video tutorials you could make a zillion totes, purses, grocery bags (you get the idea) without ever purchasing a pattern.
My favorite photo from last summer. That's Moose in the background, Gypsy (my fun black girl) and Missy our lovely silver girl.
Missy has slowly blossomed from an injured limpy poodle girl to a happy bouncy smiling girl. The injured leg is strong now, Missy actually runs and jumps into the air.
You can tell this area had lots of rain and everything greened up, grass growing faster than we could keep it mowed.
Ah, today is a beautiful day, cold and rain moved out so the front door is open for fresh air. Too bad I need to go grocery shopping, ha.
