I'm in love.....

with this Tote Bag pattern from Artsy-Crafty Babe!!!!!!!

I have had this cut out on my desk for a few days and managed to sew it up this morning. The instructions are very good and easy to follow.
I have interfaced the lining and the outer fabric but I think on the next one I would only inferface the outr fabric allowing the lining to sit a little better.
Fabric is from Textile Traders in the furnishings section and the lining is actually a very fine flannel which is lovely and soft, Gemma helped me pick the fabrics out last Saturday!
This one is a gift for Xmas and now I want to make some more. It's a great size too - not too big, but big enough to fit all my gear in, including my diary and drink bottle.
Enjoy the rest of your week!
