Tote Bag Party Update 3

I see a lot of great bags out there.  Many of you have shut down for the night, but we are still plugging away here.  I have all but the top stitching done on the pink bag.  This is a big BAG.  A bit big for me for a purse, it is meant for me for a purse.  I probably will still use it though.  The picture doesn't represent its biggness.
Notice the tucks?  This was my first experience doing tucks.  Easy Peasey.


The green bag has a ways to go yet.  It is meant for a present.  I am going to go work on it right now.


Mom is ready to square up the third bag and sew it together.  I didn't get a picture of it, but here are the other two, they just need the buttons yet.  My camera stinks at night.  Mom's bags are really cute, I will have to get a better picture of them tomorrow.



We took a dinner break and made chili for the guys.  Now we are having a sundae party...LOL.  Then, we are back at it!

My favorite bag is the one with the roses. It would hold lots of money!
