Another Birthday Tote

My friend, Christy, had a birthday on Sunday. In true Lera style, I didn't finish her birthday tote in time. It was only one day late, so not too bad. And better late than never, right?


I used Alexander Henry's Diamond Eye fabric for the out exterior and inside pocket. If you remember, I used this fabric before, for Kim's birthday apron. I even used the jumbo red rickrack again.

I lined the bag in solid red and included a divided pocket that is sized for a cell phone on one side and something else on the other.

Christy likes red, black and white together, so this tote came together pretty quickly. I was really "feeling" it. However, there are about four remaining birthday totes that I am late sewing.

They are cut out, but I'm not "feeling" them. So there they sit ... awaiting inspiration.
