May Start

My May goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes is my Sue Spargo tote. In April I blogged about the class. Here is the work in progress. If you are making one of these totes, be forewarned. I did not have spray fuse, so I quilted the lining to the batting. Fine on the sides, but NOT on the base. My error was quilting all 3 layers of the base before sewing it to the sides. I will make do by hand sewing the inner base edge. There is one pocket on the outside (with the handles stuck into it for now.) I added two pockets on the lining, a small one for a key, and a larger one for tools. What tools are indispensable for your tote? A Lovely Year of Finishes
