February Greetings from Finland

True Friends tote bag has been...

 ... inspected and approved for useful!
The fabric collection, which I used is Benartex's City Girl.

Some details about the bag:

The edge of the pocket is stitched by machine, some kind of triple stitch. The quilting is simple, only straight lines. Instead of the iron-on pellon I used the wadding fabric, which is bought for the coat someday on 80's (oh, that's old!) I was excited how it'll work... so far I'm very pleased with it. 

I also found a very old button, which is my mother's wool coat button, probably from 60's. (Wov, that's older!)

With those old things my tote bag is a real vintage thing ;o)
I like it!!!!

I'm ready for March and pincushion!


 I have seen here many pretty, gorgeous, amazing, colorful and so on...
True Friends tote bags
and I'm so proud to be part of this fabulous group!!!
You ALL inspire me a LOT, girls!!!

See you again in March!!!
