    Sewing Long Distance with Jean

    Hi Peeps,
    Today is the first day that I have ventured to my sewing machine since before Christmas. It has just been too hot to sew here, and Summer isn't over yet.

    We did have a nicer day today that was a bit cooler than usual, so I ventured into the sewing room to get something done.

    I do have some large projects that are in the quilting stage, but it was still too hot for that.

    I have had some fabric set aside for quite a while now, waiting patiently to be turned into one of Jean's Zippered totes.

    So, I took Jean into the sewing room via YouTube and came out with this cute little tote. I will be giving this one to a friend of mine, because I have enough fabric left over to make another bigger one for myself. Just need to get the zip.

    Jean, thanks for the great tutorial. I hope you enjoyed the very pleasant temperatures at my place today. It certainly made a nice change for me.

            Cute tote and I'm sure Jean loved her mini vacation.

              Lenore, no wonder I had to kick the covers off! I was warm and cozy sewing totes with you! Glad you enjoyed the tutorial and your bag turned out great!

              I love your narrow rows of stitching on the borders and straps. Usually by the time I get to the straps I'm too impatient to do much stitching!
