Another Totebag

Another one of the big totebags - this one will be going to Bill's Ann in KC. I didn't get it done before Christmas but it is all ready now except for a button which is
this pretty old thing that seems to go just great with the batiks in the bag. Only decision I have to make now is whether I will make a buttonhole in the flap or sew on some velcro. I will make a sample buttonhole and see how I like it and then decide. These bags are pretty easy to make and they are really big. I plan to make two or three more totes but different patterns.

Carol, I would love this pattern. Is it the one from the magazine from maybe last winter. If so I think that i have this magazine. Send me a note. :)

I can attest to their usefulness -- I took mine to Chicago for New Year's and this weekend on an overnight trip -- they are the perfect size for stuff like that! xxxx0000000xxxxxx

Perfect button. I recently used one of my Grandmothers buttons for a closer and it was the perfect finishing touch. Like the new header.
