Tote bag - made almost entirely in the hoop. (Testing a new design.) The second picture shows it still in the hoop - all that remains is to join the side and bottom seams of the lining.. The front section has a pocket which is closed when the flap is fastened.

Finishing this was rather depressing when I realised that I would need to make at least one more before I could offer the design. It might just remain on my "to do" list.

It is a great bag and I hope you will eventually be able to add it you your Facebook. It seems always easier to create then writing the instructions.

Seven hoopings in all, but it is great when the order comes together and everything is joined up.
