Tote Bag

My project for this week was a tote bag. Since having kids, my purses have slowly gotten bigger and bigger. Now I can't leave home with anything smaller than my kitchen sink.

It's pretty basic. I did put a couple of pockets on the inside and on the front, but they're so lopsided and terrible-looking, I was too ashamed to take a picture. Nonetheless, it's a roomy and sturdy bag, and it used up a little of my fabric stash. If I carry it with this side out, I don't think it screams "HOMEMADE!"

And on a completely unrelated note, that 70's faux-wood paneling you see behind the bag covers the entire length of the entryway to my house. Key party, anyone?

What a great looking bag!
And as for that wood panelling, it's an awesome vintage look now.

I think it beautiful. I really like it!

It's not screaming at me, anyway.

I am currently knitting a bag--a much smaller bag than yours--which I think will be really cute when finished. We'll see...!

Love the bag...the paneling...not so much! LOL..I was raised with the paneling. My mother wanted it in every room from top to bottom. Like me, it is now vintage!
