One of my New Year's resolutions (not mentioned in post below) was to craft more. A friend of mine sent me a ton of links to easy sewing projects. This one is the first I chose to tackle. I think it takes me longer to sew than most people. I'm just sort of in that beginner stage where I'm not sure of what all the terms mean, so half the time I'm googling terms such as "baste" and other various terms. It's a learning process and I just learn as I go.
Overall the tote turned out pretty well. I just figured out that I sewed in the lining inside out...oops! So I guess I won't be "reversing" this bag! That's OK though because overall I think it turned out pretty good!
