New tote!

Viola- finito!

Well, Ok, I am not 100% sure that it is finished- I may add some ribbon embellishments or something, but then again maybe not because that would fancy it up quite a bit. Anyway, it did not quite felt to size, but I got a nice tote out of the deal.

It was somewhat difficult to line- it flares out quite a bit at the top, so unless you are willing to put the time into a lining with darts (which I will no doubt do next time, since the lining bugs me) your lining will have lots of extra fabric at the middle, like mine. I love the lining fabric, which is good becuase I have tons of extra!

So this is my knitting tote for my knitting group tonight!

That is SO CUTE. The lining is excellent, too. If I were you I'd find any old excuse to open up the bag and show off the lining.

That bag is ADORABLE...and I think the lining is the perfect compliment. It really sets it off.

BTW, I was just rereading your sidebar/blog description...on my fridge I have a magnet that says: Ever notice that what the hell is always the right decision?"
haha ;-)
