    Tute for How to make a tote!!!

    Hey Everybody,
    I returned to work to day and made it just fine.Not 100% yet but soooo much better than yesterday. As everyone has requested a tute for how I make all these totes I thought I would let you know where I got the "pattern". There is a tutorial on youtube. Search "Lets quilt #26 and 27. This lady tells you how to cut it out and put it together with real good instructions. I don't use the fusible interfacing though I use a heavy duty interfacing and attach that to the outside fabric by sewing close to the edge of it before I ever put it together. I add something different to each tote I make. I probably would make a good enough tutorial without confusing everybody but I think this will give yall a good idea as to how I do it. Good luck to you all and anybody that has any questions just Private message me and I will help in any way I can. You will all be hooked like I am once you start making these.The are sew fun and asy you will love it. Hugs to all.
    Rhonda

              Rhonda, glad you are feeling better, and thanks for posting your secret. Now may I pick your brain? I want to make a different size tote, so can you tell me how long your straps are.

                  Hi girls, just need to have a little vent. I love Rhonda's totes and am anxious to make one. So after watching the video I cut out the fabric and then realised I needed the iron on pellon. So I went to Spotlight which I think would be equivalent to your Joanne's store. AND the price of a metre of iron on pellon was $29.95 I almost fell over and it's only 20" wide. I thought WHAT AN EXPENSIVE TOTE THIS IS GOING TO BE.... so anyway I will use it (like gold) but in the future use a heavy weight interfacing, as Rhonda suggested... I should have re-read her posts before shopping..............I just feel a little ripped off....
                  cheers

                    Whoa, that sounds expensive! Do you know what the relationship of your dollar to the American dollar is? I'm sure we pay a LOT less than that in the US.

                      At the moment our dollar is just over the US dollar............. go figure........ the savings are definately not be passed onto the consumer..

                        So today I went to Joanns to choose some nice fabric but got all confused on what kind to purchase.
                        I wasn't sure if the lady from the Tote Bag Video used a Home Decor... or Cotton... or or..or...
                        So I closed my eyes and just picked two Volts(yes, I made sure it was on sale) and took them straight to the cutting table B-4 I changed my Mind... Again. Figured (Once Cut I could not return it) Smart Huhh? LOL.
                        So let's see how it goes.

                        Light up a little candle for Me Gurlz....
