Something Completed Finally

Here is Mom's finished tote. The dimensions are 10 x 14 x 4. Inside is one large zippered divider pocket and on each end are two smaller pockets. I used the same idea from Lana's bag except I did the inside pocket a little differently. To the lining pieces for the ends of the bag I added an extra 1/2 inch. When it came time to sew the already finished pocket into the bag I just folded the lining end piece in half with right sides facing with the edge of the pocket sandwiched in the middle and sewed a 1/4 inch seam. That was repeated for the other end of the pocket. I don't know how this is done in patterns, but it's what I went with and the results are great.

Extra care was taken when cutting the pieces for this bag out. I made sure to get the pattern centred so it would look pretty.

When cutting the sides I wasn't so careful. But it still looks okay.

I'm not usually one for making the same thing over and over. Once I've figured out how it's done it is easy to lose interest, but this tote gives great results with a minimum of fiddley details. I just might have to make one for myself! Maybe I'll make a tutorial.

Thanks to both of you for the compliments on the bag and for the heads-up about the new contest, Wondermommy. I honestly believe the more we all share the more enriched the crafting community can become. I'll work at writing something up. Thanks again!

Ooh! That is one beautiful bag! I would love a tutorial - but I'm the same way, not liking to make a pattern again once I've figured it out, so I'll understand if you need to leave it behind, too.
