Tote #2 is much improved. I added snaps to the sides to make the bag smaller when you don't need to carry everything but the kitchen sink. I also added pockets to the inside and another pocket to the outside of the bag.
I just completed my first bag! This is a really cute little tote that has 6 pockets (3 on each side) that is perfect for carrying all of your odds and ends. Finished bag is 8"x10"x4". My next project is making a similar bag but larger.
My cousin Holly recently requested a quilt for her niece, who will be celebrating her first birthday in just a few days. I updated my labels (that I do myself) and was pretty pleased with the result. I also took my first shot at applique...it still needs some work, but hopefully practice makes perfect!
