TGIFF - Maker's Tote

Welcome to another Thank Goodness It's Finished Friday being hosted here on the East Coast of Canada.



I'm looking forward to seeing all your finishes from this week.  So I'll get the party started with my own finish.

Way back in May, I played along with May is for Makers and purchased five great patterns (which you can read about here).  I finally have my first finish -- a Maker's Tote by Anna @ Noodlehead.

This is also my first finish of my Q4 goals for Finish Along 2016.

front pocket - I skipped the snap

I'm so pleased with how it looks.  😀  Even after I forgot to change the bobbin thread before I sewed on the handles.  Oh well...

inside pockets

It was a little difficult sewing in the side sections.  It's definitely not perfect, but now that I've made one, I know what to do and not to do next time.

Now it's time for your finishes.  Link up your blog post showing off your finished project using the linkup below.  Don't forget to visit a few blogs to spread some quilty love and encouragement.  Please include a link and/or the TGIFF button in your blog post so your followers can also view all the great finishes.

  1. It looks great for your first time using this pattern! The second time tends to go smoother and it looks like it should come in handy for many different uses.

  10. It looks awesome. I don't make many bags so I admire those who get one finished up. Especially one that looks so put together!

  13. You too? I have seen those bags all over the blogland and seeing it here (done so beautifully and neatly) just prods and pokes me to make one too. It looks difficult. I am sure it was challenging to stuff all that fabric under the needle. How did you do it? Will I conquer the pattern or have a panic attack in the process?
    Hugs,
    Preeti.
