A while back I came across the 241 tote pattern and liked the style so much that I purchased the pattern.
When Mara over at Secretly Stitching posted about the swap I jumped in and joined,and am so glad that I did!
This is my tester that I sewed up last night! I love how it turned out,even though I didn't have any coordinating zips,so didn't add any zippered pockets on this one. If you have been thinking of giving this pattern a try you should! It is a very straight forward pattern and sews up pretty quickly,especially if you don't add any of the zippered pockets.
I did add one slip pocket on the inside of the bag,and of course it has the two outside pockets. I added a couple inches to the shoulder strap. For the strap I also used some scrap pieces of shape flex 101 to make it a little more sturdy.
So my goal for this month is to get this flimsy/quilt top finished,quilted and bound. Not sure if that is going to happen because it is shaping up to be a pretty busy month,so we shall see...
