New Bag

This time it's for me.

 McCall's 6131

A tote with loads of room and an extra pocket. It took longer than expected because for some reason I have problems putting in the part that is the zipper and facing. Took it out twice and was about to take it all apart when I figured out how to do it successfully. Upside down zippers don't work so well.


  1. That's darling - good job! I hate it when zippers don't cooperate.

  2. Love the design, love the fabric! Have fun with it.

  3. Well done Dolores. it looks very, Royal :-)

  4. Hi Dolores,

    Your new bag is great and love the fabric and that it will hold so much.


  5. Great tote Dolores! Zippers.....(shudder). I have several projects to do, but they all have zippers- been putting them off. Maybe now I'll feel inspired to tackle them.
    P.S. Thanks so much for the pattern. I'll be making a few of these for Christmas.

  6. Oooh love the new bag you made for yourself! I love using that size of tote, lots of room to put stuff in:-)

    Wasn't that earthquake something else to feel? My whole room seemed to be swaying, me with it!! I can't even imagine being right where a major earthquake occurs...just the tremors was enough for me! lol xoxo

  7. I bet you are glad you persevered with the bag Dolores. It looks great anyway. Zippers are my pet hate too.

  8. Love the fabric your chose there Delores! Bag looks great! 8-)
