Made another tote with a different handle.  Put the magnetic button inside the bag.  This year my trademark will be the kanzashi flower!  Used two buttons for the center of the flower.  This bag is of the same size as the previous one.

Went shopping for presents yesterday and is happy with the progress!!!  Another round tomorrow!!!  Taking time off from tote making!!

Totes and more!

I have been busy with Christmas preparations.....put together some decos for the tree, present buying etc..  Love this time of the year!! 
Made some totes to give away as presents..this is one of them!  Bought this Japanese fabric some time back.  That time I had 'big' plans!!  Was supposed to make at least one bag a month and by now, I should have quite a big collection!!!  Sad to say...that was one big dream I had!!   So now I am working very hard in the sewing room!!  Trying to churn out, at least a bag a day!!! LOL

I was working on the brown stems then decided green stems would look much better with the fabrics I chose for the flowers!  Well, two things came into mind, either I rip off the brown stems and put in green stems or I start on a new piece! The later seemed like a better idea so here it is..two sets!  I called my friend, Haminah, and asked her if she'd like to take over the brown stems and she was over the moon!  It's a kick start for her!! LOL

So the next few days, I will be sewing the stems!  But I am happy with the change!
