I made a Tote Bag!!

Today my Momma and I decided to try our hands at making a purse. But since we are both beginner sewing learners, we chose a very simple yet elegant tote that feechures the Breast Cancer motive.

Here i am with the fabric all spread out. It is very important to lay everything out, and read the DIRECTIONS. We got all our notions together. (thats a fancy word for the threads and bias tape and such)

If you look close, you can see the directions said that we would be working with a heavy cotton duck. We don't have any heavy ducks, but we gots a ceramic chicken "Bob", so he offered to help us.

Then we got everything cut out. Momma did the cutting cause i don't have thumbs. She was very careful not to cut herself, or me.

She ironed the fabric, while I stayed away. That iron was HOT, and it SPITTED AND HISSED at me!! It was very RUDE. I hissed right back at it!

Here I am curled up inside our new tote bag!

There was enough fabric left over to make a tiny cat sized bag for me! We are very pleased with our tote bags, and now we will make a real PURSE next time!!

Here i am modelling my new totebag. I hope i did ok, i am not a famous model like my pretty friend Daisy, or Skeezix.

Thank yoo for sharing our crafty time with us today!



  1. What a fantastic totebag and feline purse! Excellent job! I am sure that having "Bob" there made everything come out just right! Woohoo! Congratulations!
