As you know I am taking part in the totally talented and absolutely amazing Amy Gibson's sugar block of the month with Linda and Wynneth. I am determined to make every single block into something and this one is the first.....
I used instructions from "sew what bags" a book I have worked from before. This tote you make two bags and slip one inside wrong sides together and turn the tops under by an inch and slip the handles in between the two layers. Not a hard job, but I had to add a border on to my block and do some fiddling to get it to the right size.
This bag is the first real project on the new machine which I have to say is so much easier to use than my old brother, just things like speed control and the extra guides marks on the foot plate.....quite honestly it's just delicious.
