True Friends.....

I have seen so many beautiful versions of this bag

What a great project for our Stitchalong


I'm a bit cross with myself as I didn't do the satin stitching of the hearts on the trees and the flower heads

I just got too excited to make the bag 


... the back....


I was surprised how lovely and big it is

.... will hold lots of fabric ....

I love it....

Gorgeous fabrics for your bag, Fiona. It looks beautiful, and I agree, it is a good size.

Annie said...

Lovely Fiona! I can totally relate to wanting a finish....I often have the "I wish"!!

Noela said...

It looks great the way it is Fiona so don't be cross with yourself. Love the fabrics you have used. Hugs.....

Maria said...

Sew many different fabrics being used to make the tote..
I really like the way yours came together...
The stitchery looks fine without the satin stitch...

Satu said...

I love your Hunky Dory fabrics. They are great choice for this tote bag!

Susan said...

Looks great - well done on the finish.

Marg H said...

How pretty is that! Love your choice of colours. I didn't exactly follow the stitchery. As I'm carrying it here and there, I ended up stitching the hearts instead of appliqueing. Oops! Thinking about how to fix that - or leave it! Maybe I'll make two. Just love your finish. That's the best thing about the SAL - seeing the great choice in colours. The other is the deadline and the push to get sewing!

Your tote is really pretty!

Teresa said...

Oh Fiona your bag is gorgeous - so cheery and fresh. I love it. I wish I hadn't done the satin stitch on my bags stitchery - it is definitely my least favourite stitch!!!! Well done xx
