Hi Cuties, Thankyou for all your lovely comments.

Toogie asked for me to explain further on how I made my 4 Pocket Tote.
Here is a very short version of how I made The 4 Pocket Tote.

So I have listed some Photos for you all.

1. Front Panel with Pocket, Middle Panels x 2 and Back Panel.
2. Take the 2 Middle Panels and Clip them together, then draw a chalk line as per Photo, ( I had a Template that I had made for this part ). Stitch both Panels together following the chalk line.
3. Then Clip and Stitch the Binding onto the Front Panel and then do the same for the back Panel.

Note.... Because this is a Little Tote, I would suggest that you Stitch the Handles on before you Bind the Pocket together.
When I made mine for the Mystery Class I did the handles last and found it a little difficult to get it around my free arm of my Machine.

As I have already taught a class, we put the Handles on first and the result was a lot easier.

Regards Lorraine
South Australia

Thank you for taking the time, to add the photos . It is a cute little bag and your fabric is wonderful. I bet the people in your class really enjoyed this project. Did you also show them how to make their own binding? Some people buy it instead of making it themselves. Thanks again-Toogie

Hi toogie, Your welcome. I put all the kits together for my classes as the Ladies only have 2 hours in which to make a project, but I do tell them how to make the bindings in the Instructions that I include for them in there kits.

Hi Chris, Thankyou. I had a lot of fun making this little tote. And my Ladies in class could not wait to get home and make another one.
