I was pleased to see that this pattern actually worked when made up. I am still not a fan of the hard handles, but I do like the look of the bottom of the bag. I especially like the way there seems to be one bag inside another. The colors on this rendition are quite appealing as well.
Margi, over at maverickcrafter.blogspot.com, sent me over to Canton Quiltworks where I saw she had made a tote. You might be thinking that this is no big deal except that I bought this magazine while I was in Seattle and TFQ and I were scrutinizing the pattern. We seem to do that with all the totes we see now.
