To Work Oh Bold Seamstress


This tote is at the stage where it could turn into an Ufo now.
I don't make Ufos anymore, right - so I better get at it!
I want it finished in November and I want to use it tomorrow at a mini guild meeting, and the only known way, without a wand, is to do one seam at a time until it is done ;-)

I have decided on 2 inside pockets, one big with zipper and one smaller, without zipper, for keys and such. I have also bought a long brown zipper today.

I have not decided on the handles yet - whether to make them shoulder length or to use store bought short leather handles.
Well - I have to make the lining with the pockets anyway, so instead of thinking it to death I better start and see where the process brings me :-)

This tote is turning out nicely. You will get it done today. I know how easy it is to put things aside and start on a new fresh project. You have been very good about finishing your projects and an inspiration to me.

I like that thought "...one seam at a time until it is done" I'm going to keep that in mind next time I get frustrated.

It's going to be so cute! Bareroots stitchery patterns are wonderful, aren't they?

I hope you keep on and this doesn't become a UFO. Cause it's way too pretty for that.

I like it lots and lots so far! Eager to see a picture of the finished product.

No more UFO's ever - now that is an amazing resolution! I don't know if I'd ever dare make that one!

How cute - I don't make bags but I've seen several now that tempt me to try. Are you going to make your deadline and have it finished in November?

Dawn said...

Oh it is beautiful so far! This is going to be a gorgeous bag!

Hei og takk for link på sida mi! Forresten, håpar det er ok at eg skriv norsk, eller er det ein bloggregel å skrive på engelsk når det meste er på engelsk? Er vel meir nyttig for utenlandske....
Så artig å sjå denne veska med broderi frå Bareroots, har den liggande ved sida av dataen, klar til å brodere!! Har sett litt meir på sidene dine, trur vi har lit same smak, for der er sååå mykje som eg likar. Eg kjem nok ofte på besøk til deg her.
