it's official

ok, i finally decided. this is the tote i am making, it's calling for exactly the amounts of everything i have. it will be the floral bottom & sides, brown handles, and turquoise lining. and although it calls for heavyweight interfacing, she says it looks as nice with medium, which is what i have. i may reinforce the bottom with plastic like she mentions, just to give it a little more stability. & i am definitely leaving out the zippered divider pocket this time. i haven't done a zipper in many, many years, & if i recall right, i sucked at them. ok, wish me luck, i'm off to begin cutting!

I'm so glad you are going to try the tutorial. Tell me what you think of it. The idea people are actually going to make this bag makes me feel like a rockstar. Does that make me a dork? hehe

Can't wait to see it made up!
