Beautiful totes!  I looove the shirt.  I appreciate the fact that the pocket fabric print lines up with the shirt front.  That took a lot of extra time and a lot more fabric, but the results are great!

Question, Kameleon:  do you sew your ribbon on or use some kind of fabric adhesive?  If you sew your ribbon, do you find that grosgrain is the best to use or does it matter?  I'm asking because everytime I've tried to sew ribbon, it a) shows my messy stitching and b)tends to fray eventually.  But at the same time sometimes those adhesives don't work well either.  Maybe the trick is to use a nice wide grosgrain?  Tips, please!

Your totes are beautiful.  I love large prints - especially floral.

Hi crystal 0901, I don't use adhesive. For sewing the ribbon i put the upper transport on my sewing machine. Also an opportunity is using Vlisofix, also usable for making applications. You can iron it on the ribbon, remove the paper and iron it on your bag. Give it a try.

Cool!  Thank you!  I like the style of your bags and I'm trying to find a nice in-between size for the pattern I have.
