Above is what was to have been the inside of the piece, with the FMQ'g complete. and below is what was to have been the outside of the piece complete with FMQ'g. The basic square ( and it must be a square) finished to about 17 1/2" square, which was then bound.
Here it is clipped together ready to hand stitch.
Once it was stitched, I added a twisted cord of #8 perle cotton, and a plastic curtain ring wrapped with the same #8 perle cotton, so the closure could be tied, as well as a small carrying handle.
The finished tote is large enough to hold a hand work project and supplies.
I plan to link this with The Needle and Thread Network
