I hadn't thought before of making a tote bag out of wool. Then, I read it in this book,

"Hold It ... " by Nancy Restuccia. Terrific resource if you can get it. (I got mine off E-Bay auction site.)

So, I bought some Wool fabric and decided to give it a try. Simplicity 9658, bag B. It's a nicely sized tote, neither too large, nor too small.


Here it is:


And the other side:


This one will remain mine. Period.
Thank you for looking.
Any feedback is welcome.

Nicely done!  And I bet it feels a lot less bulky than a canvas tote!

Yup. Except, I had to use a lightweight canvas to interface it; so it won't crumple into a heap.  But, it's very good looking. I'm keeping it as mine. (Even my hubby isn't getting it!)
