Sewing stuff - New tote bag!

Just wanted to share the new tote bag I made a couple of weeks ago.  I've made a couple more since making this bag, I just forgot to take the pics.  I will be making more totes this week.... these little sausage fingers are gonna be super busy. I'm going to be making big hobo bags...is that really what they're called? lol!! 


For some extra flare I'll just tie the selvages or leftover fabric to the handle.  Sometimes it's a flower or a initial. I like to personalize it a little bit.



Both the outside and inside pockets have brown on the inside with the blue stitching.



I really like the way this bag came out!  My sister loved it!

  3. I love your bag. The color is great and the lining fabric is great! I like to add a personal embellishment to my bags too. I hadn't thought about simple fabric scraps. That's a wonderful idea!! I'll have to remember that one :)
