here and here). Since I really like those Woolies, I decided to use them all in a tote for yours truly.
I made sure the shell of the tote had its wrong side out. I placed the lining right side out inside the shell (I did cut a 3" slit on the bottom of the lining). I placed the 'belt' handles in between the shell and lining, pinned them in place, and stitched around the opening. Then, I pulled the bag through the 3" opening I had cut in the lining. Next, I pressed the seam where the shell was stitched to the lining, stuck lining inside the shell, and topstitched the opening. Done!
Speaking of going places, have you seen block 12 of the City Girl Sew Along, called The Commons? Check it out before you leave. In the meantime, I am linking to Crazy Mom Quilts, Confessions of a Fabric Addict, Quilt Shop Gal, Forth Worth Fabric Studio, Sew Fresh Quilts, and My Quilt Infatuation...
Enjoy your weekend!
