Design Wall

It's been a while since I had anything for the wall. I have a professional tote by creative thimble that I started and finished in the last couple of days. I really like the contrast of the lining color to the outside. A fun surprise inside.

This is a fiddly pattern, with lots of steps, but the finished bag is quite nice. I think I've made 4 of them now. I don't have a picture of the first one, but I made that in 2005 for my sister-in-law for Christmas. The next one was last year in February. I made that one for myself but used the wrong kind of interfacing so it's very squishy.

I made another one right away, and that one was for my sister. I used the correct interfacing that time and it was much crisper.

The inside of the one I just completed is a red Hawaiian print. It's a nice touch of color when you open the bag without being over the top.
