It is Tuesday and I have so many pictures to share with you. But I don't have a lot of time these days so I will eek the pictures out a bit at a time.
On Sunday, which was also M's birthday (and I'll deal with that another day), it was also the second class of the Professional Tote by The Creative Thimble.

The class was split into two different days. I had purchased the pattern some time ago, but finished it at the beginning of this year. It is a very well designed bag - VERY professional.
Here are the results of the class..................
|My version of The Professional Tote|
Even though the bag is well designed, there are a few changes that I recommended and then the class went wild with their own ideas.
|Sandy used a decorator fabric (I was very disappointed when she said that this bag was for HER daughter and not for me!!! - just kidding)|
|She put bag feet on the bottom of her bag|
|Valerie used webbing for the handles|
|Colleen went crazy with MATCHING her pockets to the background. It is hard to tell in this picture, but she did an awesome job.|
|Barb also used webbing for the handles and ALSO went crazy on the matching of the fabric. She was COMPLETELY finished when she left. Mind you - she did go ahead in the pattern!|
|Donna - love the punch of those coloured zippers! She was also finished when she left (she had also worked ahead). And Donna made the entire bag (with its MANY MANY layers of fabric in spots) on an older Kenmore!!!|
If you are interested in making the Professional Tote, we will be running it AGAIN at The Hobby Horse. The dates are in May - call The Hobby Horse to get signed up.
And you MUST check out QUILTSocial today. It is all about words on quilts and a couple of other projects. It is also pretty funny!
On that note - I have a couple of e-mails to get out this morning and then another crazy busy day.
Have a good day!!
