New Tote Bag....





Finally finished my new Tote bag....first saw this bag on Ruth Ann's blog and asked her about the pattern and she very kindly gave me the link and the pattern arrived  within 2 weeks from the USA...
The fabric I've used  had been sitting in my cupboard for a couple of years as I intended to make a lap quilt with it but it never happened so decided it was time to use it and so pleased I did as I am really happy the with end result.
As you can see it has two huge pockets inside and a small one on the outside..of course you can make the pockets any size you want or add more inside.
We have our Stampin Up day with the lovely Jenny Moors tomorrow so my bag is packed and waiting to go....


Thanks for looking


Anne

What a great tote this is & you will find it comes in handy for "toteing" many a thing but especially Copic markers & some images to color up where ever you are ... Sure do enjoy the one Ruth Ann made me & glad she was able to share her pattern with you. Everyone needs a terrific friend like her. She's beautiful inside & out !!! Love the fabric you used ...
