Friday Finishes

Happy Friday!

We had a few scary moments earlier this afternoon when a tornado touchdown near our city here in Florida.  Thankfully no damage!

I spent most of the week relaxing and making travel plans.  After reading Wendy’s post DrEAMi ( Drop Everything and Make It) I realized I needed a tote bag for our road trip next week.

I made two test bags, one with batting and one with heavy interfacing.  I added pockets to each bag and made a matching phone cover for the one made with batting.  I’ll need to purchase buttons this weekend to finish them.  So far I prefer the one with batting it stands on its own and seems to be quite sturdy.

I didn’t use a pattern or a tutorial for either – What’s your favorite tote bag pattern or tutorial?

Until next time – Happy Sewing!
