Finally I've gotten to the Home Ec project I was really looking forward to: the Tote Bag! I know, it's really not that exciting, but if you know me at all, you know I really like bags. And I am a sucker for a cute tote bag.
The fabric for this project is pretty wild. When I saw it at the thrift store I knew immediately it would be perfect for the tote - it's a heavy canvas - great for carrying big loads. Once I started working with the fabric, I realized there is a LOT of it, so I'll probably be making several totes in this pattern. Oh well, it's fun. And it wouldn't it look awesome with this little jacket?
I've been feeling a bit under the weather the last few days. My mysterious allergies that I've had the last month have turned into a full-blown head cold. Though I've been slogging along through my work, it hasn't been pretty. And I haven't been going too crazy with my extracurricular projects; trying to take it easy. I hate taking it easy - there's way too much to get done!
