Here is my latest project and of course it is a tote bag :>) This pattern is for sale on my Etsy store (click HERE to take you directly there).
Normally I don't sell any embroidery designs that I use on my samples, but I am trying something new this time. This pattern includes the embroidery designs shown on the tote bag as a BONUS with the purchase of my pattern. The designs will be sent with the pattern in JEF, PES, HUS and EXP formats. Both designs (an applique cross for the lining) require at least a 5"x 7" hoop to stitch them. The cross can be completed in one hooping, using the 5" x 7" hoop, but the scripture will require two hoopings if using a 5" x 7" hoop. The scripture does fit in a single hooping for a 7" x 11" or larger hoop.
The tote bag is ZIPPER FREE so it is a very quick project (even for a beginner). You could make plenty of these tote bags to give to the people on your Christmas list that you have no idea what to get for them. Or you can even make these and sell them at craft shows (that season is coming up quickly you know). The bag is so unique that it is sure to attract lots of attention to your booth.
The bag measures 12 1/2"tall x 14" wide x 5" deep, making it the perfect size to hold your necessities any day of the week.
