Sew at tote bag for my daughter! She wants it for college which starts in a few days! I found the pattern at Walmart, but did not use anything in the pack but the one piece that when turned makes a bag (handles and all)!!!!! I saw a gal at her blog called "A Very Purple Person" use the one piece pattern (her own) and how to work the magic to make a tote! So I used her instructions !
Here it is in a very "Lolita" fashion!
With a quilted pocket inside. Large enough to hold her cell and 3DS.
A few more shots in poor lighting, but shows lace on front.
I used stabilizer in the outer fabric to give it more strength, and body.
As soon as my DIL saw it, she exclaimed "I want one"!!!!! LOL. I hope I get faster at it, ....... I'm sure I will. ;)
