single strap tote

I tried something today, a medium side-by-side tote with a single strap.  I don’t think this translates to a larger tote (??) but in a medium one, I think it works well!  Especially if it will be used to carry lighter weight items like sweater knitting….

I have another experiment going based on a modification to this bag, so keep watch….(and please forgive the charming background of the photos I take on my table – I seem to finish a lot of projects when there’s no sunlight in my preferred photo spot.

I also finished this “spoon” pattern fabric project bag – at the suggestion of M, but she knits sweaters, so I am working on something bigger for her….unless she wants this one.

I’ve had a couple of requests for project bags from people who saw previous bags and I’ve been having such a good time making a bag for each of them (HI A and M!).

I was just moving along, working on each of them together and thinking about the linings I’ll cut next….and I looked down.  Ooh, pretty.

Now, each of these lovely women have an idea of what their bag might look like (M, if you want this one, it is yours – but I also have a larger pattern in mind for you), but neither is here standing next to me to see them emerge.  I felt I just had to post a progress pic.  Next up, lining fabric.
