What advice would you give someone starting this project? I used a fat quarter of Batik fabric to start. Then after Stupendous Stitching, I folded the piece in half. It was too short for a bag,, so I sewed two pieces of black fabric to both ends. I quilted some gold lines on the black fabric to tie in with the gold thread on the main fabric.

really wonderful. What pattern did you use for the tote? thanks for the inspiration

No pattern. I used a fat quarter of Batik fabric to start. Then after Stupendous Stitching, I folded the piece in half. It was too short for a bag,, so I sewed two pieces of black fabric to both ends. I folded my fabric in half and sewed the sides. I took another piece of fabric for the lining and measured the same size as the outer piece.

I think this is really great! Both the bags are unique - I would be really pleased if I could do half as good.. x
