This time the Large Tote. Leah is kindly modeling here... in a headless kind of way. When I modeled it, the bag dangled around my KNEES.... with my height I was never meant for a modelling career. The strap has large snap hooks at either end, and the bag has medium-heavy o-rings. It can be made shorter by looping it through one ring and snapping both hooks to the other ring. The fabric is by Moda (surprise surprise) from the Blossom range. I love it. It has medium-heavy interfacing and light fusible wadding to give it some body. It has a Fast2Fuse base.On the inside there is more Moda fabric, a zip pocket and a swivel hook (from which to hang ones keys...).
I've just re-drafted the Large Tote pattern, with lots more annotations and a simplified layout to make it super-easy for absolute beginners. I tweaked a few minor things so had to sample it again to make sure it was all ok.
While sewing this today, I sneaked in a few seams here and there... and made a little dress in this fabric from the pattern that was loitering on my desk yesterday.
Told you I was itchin'...
