Ok, so it is not my usual style. But there is purple- I love purple- and it looked like it had potential. And by the time it is chopped around a little it will not be quite so... well, it will not be quite SO.
And it will make a great tote!
When we did that super Mouthy stitches swap back... when?? I loved my tote, and I use it a lot, but I did think, perhaps just slightly larger would have been good.
So, getting involved in another swap, I just couldn't leave well enough alone, could I? Well, could you? No, I thought not!
So, I upped the size a little! Only a little. And put together a new tote.
And just when I had the front sorted, that naughty little think gremlin came along, and said in my ear, ' you could put a magnetic catch pocket just there you know. It would work really well , and almost hide.' And who doesn't like an extra pocket on the front?
And a neat little magnetic catch pocket appeared. And went in, just like it was meant to.
and on the inside, a patch pocket is always useful, isn't it?
The plainer purple against those hot chevrons looks Ok too, methinks!
and I need a zippy pocket too, there is always something needing to be secure...
Oh but it is going travelling... I cannot keep it. Now I am sad... I love this one- even if it ended up a tad larger than intended... I sort of forgot- adding that pocket added to the length, by a little over an inch, and adding an extra inch on each side, means the bag is 4" bigger in circumference... So it is definitely an OVERSIZE tote!
next question... will my swap partner like it...Or is it too big! I shall post it and we shall see!
