Thanks folks! I did the embroidery with the help of my mom and her machine Wink

I'll try to work on the tutorial this weekend and maybe have something posted by Sunday night, if not sooner!

I'll try to work on it this weekend! I started a thread for the bag here:

And that's where I'll post the tute!

Ya know you want to!

Oh, I absolutely do! But I really do have to get my other things done first...but since it looks like I'll be stuck at home due to the snow tomorrow, I may have 2 days of uninterrupted craft time. So, I can hopefully knock most of what I have to do off of my list!
6924  PURSES, BAGS, WALLETS / Purses, Bags, Wallets: Completed Projects: General / Fold-up Tote Bag (Tutorial on Page 2-image heavy) on: February 29, 2008 04:27:14 PM
This is a tote bag that I made for the Reading Rainbow 4 Swap. It folds up and then unfolds to make a pretty good-sized tote. I modeled it after one that I had purchased at the grocery store, but I made the bottom wider.

This is what it looks like folded up:

And here it is in all of its unfolded glory Wink

I did take pictures as I was making it, so I could try to make a tutorial for it if anyone is interested!

craftADDchick:  That totebag rocks!  I think it is so cool that you monogrammed it so it would show on the pocket when it is folded up.

It's actually 2 monograms. One shows when it is folded. Then, I did a total dope slap when I realized that when it is unfolded, the monogram would be on the bottom of the bag, and nobody would see it! So, with the touch of the start button, I did a second monogram on an extra piece of fabric I had with me and made a pocket!

ETA: I think I'm going to give the bag its own post over in purses, etc. I took pics as I made it, so if folks are interested, I may be able to toss a tute together!

awesome idea for the lining!!

Thanks! I saw the tute on here, and made a lunch bag for my sister-in-law lined with it. So, when I was planning on making this, it seemed like another great use for it!

I have that fabric, its really a cute bag. I need to break out ,y huge collection of frog fabric and go to it.

Thanks! And you should sign up for the Leap Year Frog Swap (http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=230758.0) as an extra excuse to make some cool stuff with your fabric. Wink

HA! I love it when I first start working with it. Then at the end, when I've finished sewing it, I curse it, because I always seem to have a section where I have missed the fabric completely and must go back.

Excellent job!

Sounds very familiar!

And, thanks for the compliments Wink

I absolutely love the tote you did, CraftADDChick. How did you do the edging, if you don't mind sharing?

I absolutely love the tote too! I'm so glad she was my partner! I was telling her, last Saturday I went to the grocery store, and used it there. Came home, unloaded groceries, and had to teach a class, tossed all my class materials into it and hit the road. The bag is really big! It fit 12x12 scrapbook paper up the side, and the flat bottom was great for pencils, adhesives, etc etc.

craftADDchick rocks!

Thanks! And right back at you Wink The bag that you made for me is now my official "busy bag!" for when I have to wait at appointments and repair shops.

My camera cord is entirely MIA.  So I greatly appreciate her sharing photos.

Not a problem! Wink

This is bad.  I received today and I just sat down to PM the organiser that I had received.   I have worked WAY too much overtime.
I'll try to get pics tomorrow.

I didn't get it until I looked at who posted and then I laughed.

I'm on the fence about round 2...I have a few long overdue commitments that I need to take care of first. If I can finish those up before signups end, then I'll join in!

nosusanfx, what an excellent tin! I can't imagine the time that it took to decorate the outside (awesome job, ateapartyscandal!). I love the skull beads, and the shrinky dink skulls came out fantastic, as did the little bear!

tracey87, the tin that you received is adorable. One of may favorite Disney films! And such cool little "thingamagigs!" Love the jewel magnets Wink And, the tin that you sent to "Holliewood is so clever! i really like the tetris magnets.
