I decided to make a tote bag - because who doesn't need more tote bags?
To start - sewing strips as a base. I was going to do a rainbow, but those first colors of pink and orange really grabbed me, so I went with it. Simple wavy lines quilted, with masking tape to keep them in order.
POCKETS for the lining!
Sewing it all together
Sewing up the turning hole in the lining
The PERFECT button from the button stassh.
A view from the top.
A little reinforcing for the straps. One of the sides of one strap is a little wonky/angular, but it's still functional.
A bright new tote to love.
