What are you most proud of? I am pleased with the end result. It starts out flat and shapless and before my very eyes it starts to take shape within a few hours I am putting a price tag on a one of a kind Tote....THAT I MADE! WHOA!!!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time and select fabric that speaks to YOU!! Don't be afraid of color! Just go for it. Make the lining and inside pockets as cute as the exterior. Also I put a small little flash light in each of my bags.

Your totes are beautiful! You definitely have an eye for color and design. Looks like you have a small business going! I have just ordered the same sewing machine you have in the picture!

Thank You so much. You will absolutely love that sewing machine. I recently purchased an embroidery/sewing machine but too scared to use it!!! I don't have a business...yet...but I have considered it. I am retired after 35 years of working so I love doing what I want to do... when I want to do it.

I love the fabrics and hardware. Where do you purchase them mostly?
