Well, it was 11 PM on the night before the last day of school but I finished the tote bags for my daughter’s teachers. Each has a back and handles made from a toile canvas, with the inside edges finished with a zigzag stitch.
Because the canvas was 56″ wide, the handles were just one width of fabric, cut in half (long enough to go over a shoulder. I was able to find leftover binding for each from two quilts I had made for my daughter at different times. My daughter used a fabric marker to personalize and date each handle.
My daughter was rather sad yesterday, knowing that she won’t be returning to that school. My husband has just retired, so they will be home schooling next year while I continue to work.
Next on my to-do list is buttons and waistband alterations for a couple of band uniforms. But once I’m done that it’s back to the fun stuff. Linking up to TGIFF.
