wy not make a clear plastic purse with 2 magnetic strips in the top seam that way you can see what is in it I love the embroidery what a great job hugs Ursula
A great design on a beautiful bag.
Thank you Roberta
Just beautiful Toogie. I did all my bags I gave my ladies luncheon group without pockets inside and I rue it to this day. I use mine every day and get so frustrated as everything goes to the bottom!!! Love Chris
I like a purse with inside pockets, too. I like to reach in and actually find what I am after. My sister on the other hand, likes huge bags and doesn't mind 'digging around' for what she's after, even though most of the time it IS on the bottom. Thanks Chris-Toogie
Oh, Toogie, this is gorgeous! What a fabulous job you did on this one!
Love all your bags and this is beautiful and well done!
Thank you Lidia
Your bag is lovely. I've found cotton webbing for $1.30 per yard. Leaving you a link.
Thanks, I'll check it out.
Lovely tote, great design even if it had loads of stitches
It is a great design-thanks
Terrific bag Toogie, love the design, well done. Sandra.
Thank you Sandra. The design is very nice but so many stitches on top of stitches, makes it kinda hard. Thank goodness its okay and worked on this canvas fabric.
Well done, whoever receives it will be fortunate. It will be perfect to hold all the things people pick up as they travel. You did a great job as usual pockets or not.
That's so nice of you to say, thanks. I want to make more things and wouldn't mind making more totes, if the cotton webbing wasn't so high.
This is great. You have to be so proud of this. I know I would be. The stitching is superb!
Thanks Wendy, I don't know about proud, I'm just glad to be done with it. I think if I did anymore I would make the strap out of something else. If I bought cotton webbing @ $1.74 yard, it would be almost $6 just for the straps!
Beautiful bag, Toogie...and love the design...perfect for Colorado!
I think so too and that's what my niece wanted, an elk. Thanks!
A beautiful save. Well done. It is a must to always print Emblibrary designs color charts. Sometimes I spent more time in my software trying to straighten out the colors than I do stitching them. I do however love their designs. My format is Art and I learned years ago to buy Pes from Emblibrary. I do appreciate the fact that Veronica's Art format designs are true Art. Kay
When I was first saving designs, I wasn't too worried about not having the color chart. Now I know the value of having them at your fingertips.
Thanks Kay for looking!
Magnificent tote and design.
Everything about this is perfect! You have a lot of patience in sticking with this project to the finish. I imagine that working with a drop cloth would be very difficult let alone turning it into something so fantastic! Well done and completed!
Wasn't hard at all to work with, after I washed and dried it softened up. I bought it at Harbor Freight, a man's tool store. The drop cloth wasn't much and if I decide to make any more I should get 3 totes made out of one drop cloth.
I love finding sewing items at a hardware/non-sewing store! Seems things are just cheaper.
They are and so do I love finding the unexpected.
It's kinda like clothing. Men's clothing are usually bigger, but cheaper. The manufactures know men won't pay the high price women pay, is what I think!
It is beautiful. They should have no trouble seeing Elk here in CO. Sometimes pockets are not necessary. When I take a notebook to a conference, I have a small purse I drop in my big carrier bag.
So you're in Colorado? The Royal Gorge is on the itinerary, is that anywhere near you?
I know my niece wanted to do the tour after the end of May, but the spokeswoman she was talking to told her the elk would move up into the mountains by then. So the trip is planned for earlier.
Very beautiful as always!!!
TALENTED TOOGIE, sounds like a good name for you. This is gorgeous and I'm sure will be much loved. Do you know of a pattern or tutorial for this bag? My sister would love this.......................with horses.
A pattern? Remind me with a pm and I will measure and tell you what size I cut this one. Don't have time right now. I'm killing time, waiting on DH to get ready. We have a wake to go to.
Beautiful design, hugs Maria
It really is-thanks
Beautiful bag Beautiful design
Love it can i buy it??hugs
Already gone! I've only made 6 ITH small bags and this tote for her. I need to get as busy as you,m for more gifts for her to give. May will be here all too soon!
Great design.and love it on that bag.
I do love the design too and the canvas was just the right weight, for all these stitches. Thanks
Stunning design and bag, Toogie!
Impressive - I share your pain over the webbing!
Oh have you 'been there, done that' too? I think I had got 5 yards for $2. of this polyester webbing, where as cotton webbing was $1.74 a yard. Now I know why the poly was so cheap....can't iron!
A beautiful bag Toogie and well done on completing it inspite of the problem with the iron. Someone is going to enjoy using this
It didn't take long to finish it, but I just didn't want to work on it.... lost interest in it, I suppose.
