For my friend Helen's birthday... kind of following this pattern and kind of making it up as I go along (sometimes I mean to follow the instructions but end up thinking I know better, I invariably don't!)

Anyway, I'm pleased with the shape and size of it (the last tote I made ended up just about big enough to hold a small paperback and not much else, but it's the thought that counts isn't it...) I quite enjoyed pressing the seams, learnt something new there, but the sewing is a bit (ok, a lot) wobbly. More practice is definitely in order on the sewing machine, I get a bit carried away with my foot on the pedal... Weeeeeeeee!

And now I want to sew more sprouters...

Oh I love your totes Sarah, they are great. I never bother with patterns, with all their jargon everywhere, I tend to make it up as I go along, and I've only had a few fatalities along the way.

ps thanks for the comment on my myspace blog, I never lasted in the library, the urge to fold books got too much for me to bear, but it's given me more time to spend with my own paper, so it's a good thing.
