PART 3 OF THE TOE BAG SEWING PARTY

This is where I am at on the tote bag. I have to hand stitch the top band to the bag on the outside. Then I have to make the handles and sew them on. I made the wool pincushion just a bit ago. Had to do that with hand stitching. That will get sewn in with a handle. I hope to get this done yet this evening. I will post photos of the whole bag inside and out when I get it all done.
It's been a fun day. And I have only eaten three of the little Reese's Cups.

  1. Oh my...how cool is that to have a wool pincushion sewn into the bag. It's a wonderful tote so far...and I do have to tell you that I could not have had just three Reese's if I allowed the bag near me! I've been trying to be so good. I walk past chocolate here on a regular basis. We have a big bowl leftover from Easter that my guys munch on.

  9. Darling bag! And I love the little bird and the stripes and the rick-rack, etc. I really need to make a couple gifts like that. The little rounded bottom is a cute change also.
