Reversible Tote with Grommets

Project Description

What are you most proud of? Deviating from the pattern. I added the grommets and tapered the bag instead of making it boxy. These are my own personal touches. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time and follow the steps, it's not as intimidating as it may look.

What you will need

  • Timeless Treasures I Love UK British Flag & British Tube Map 100% Cotton Fabric
  • Grommets and plain black fabric for handles. Batting for handles and tote.

I've been planning to make a purse with gromets. The idea of being able to open it up completely to see inside intrigues me. I saw one at a craft sale and liked it. Yours looks great!
Tanya W. answered:
Thank you very much, I really like having it reversible and the grommets were so easy! I really appreciate your comments!
LinRupp asked:
The tapered sides are so much more feminine. VERY nice deviation!
Tanya W. answered:
Thanks, I like that look so much better too!
LinRupp asked:
I'll have a hard time making it reversible as I am addicted to POCKETS!
Tanya W. answered:
In one sense yes, but there is nothing wrong with having a pocket on the outside if you want. By the way, congratulations on trying stippling. My Disappearing 9 Patch I have posted is my first attempt at stippling a finished product. After so much practising, you really have to dive right in and go for it!
