Happy Canada Day everyone!
Prior to 1982, July 1st used to be called Dominion Day. You can read about what it is all about here. For some strange reason my kids were both away today, which meant I didn't need to stand in the sun and watch the parade. So I celebrated Canada Day by...guess what?!?
That's right - Canadian quilting!
I worked on my tote bag from the spring shop hop (you can read about the shop hop here). For those of you like Mare and Paula, I know you can sew these tote bags in your sleep! But for me, having only sewn 2 bags in my entire life, it was hard!
Here I am on the left sewing the handles to the INSIDE of the bag! Nope - that's wrong.
Let's see...how to fix, how to fix?
Cut them off and try again!!!
I kept thinking that no one else complains about how difficult these bags are and Mare is making them by the hundreds! I just kept at it, and finally finished! This is how Paula shows her bags by hanging them on the doorknob. So here is the tote bag, back and front.
