Something done

Today (and yesterday) I was working on a Professional Tote for my sister. She bought the fabric, and I sewed it up. I really love this pattern, even tho it is highly labor intensive. No matter who does it, it always looks store bought. I used upolstery fabric, so it is heavy to begin with. I have an industrial machine, and would NEVER do it on my home machine. Well, with upolstery fabric, anyway. I have done 4 of them now, all on my industrial, and I dont know how people can do them on their regular machines. I would like to make one without any interfacing (and upolstery fabric) except for a few parts and see how it works. But for now, I will take a break and make some "other" bags. I have 2-3ring binders and a computer full to choose from!

My hope was to post a few pics of what else I have been working on, but I am not sure if I will have the time, as I leave for Mpls. on Sat. and have to pack. I will try to get them out in a week or so. But maybe....since i need to "see" what I have to get done!
