Thanks for the tute. I seldom post, but do read the tote threads.
I can get pics in the tute up to & including the velcro pics, after that
,it's just a camera....no more pics. Does anyone know
what I'm doing wrong? Would love to make this tote,
if I can get the rest of the tute instructions. TIA,Pat Huh

I loved the bag in this tute so much that I made it as my first sewing project in a long time (since high school)... and got so fed up with mums old sewing machine while making it that I went out and bought myself a new one for future projects!

I can't post photos yet but you can see photos of my purple and multicoloured heart bag here:

Sew body pieces together at sides and top-
3. Turn A rightside out and slip it inside B (which is still wrongside out).  Pin the two pieces together at the top of the bag, matching the side seams.  Stitch, trim seam, turn rightside out, press, and topstitch 1/4" from the edge through both layers of fabric.  The bag now has a finished edge at the top and raw edges at the bottom:

Ahh, this is the part I'm really having trouble doing. So I sew all along the top and when I turn it rightside out, obviously the top is going to be sewn shut. What did I do wrong? Can someone please help me quickly, I am making my best friend a bag for Christmas and Christmas is coming very soon lol so yeah...

peaceouttkiki - you just sew through 2 layers of the fabric at once... so you sew in a big loop around the whole top with right sides facing together... then turn it right sides out and topstitch around the loop again to make it a finished edge... your 'bag' should be like a tunnel with two open ends at this stage...

hope that made sense and helped you out a bit!
