I set the quilts aside for a today and had a go at another project. I wanted to make a bag or two for my give away but wasn’t sure about what style. A few days ago I saw this post and was reminded of this tutorial. Something clicked last night and I knew that I wanted to apply the straps, front pocket, and piping to my Library Tote.
My straps are 1 1/2 inches wide made from fabric instead of the belting and I made my own piping following the instructions for piping in this tutorial decreasing the width of fabric to 1 1/2 inch. I just applied Jill’s technic for these and the outside pockets (one is on the back too) to my Library Tote tutorial.
And here you go… Present Number 1
I hope you like it.
(Recognise the fabric? I don’t think I’ll ever tire of that line.)
