Am I ever happy with this finish!
I thought I should have something handmade to bring with me to QuiltCon, and the Noodlehead 241 tote was just the ticket.
The front fabric is Martha Negley Classic Collection Tree Rings - I love it, especially paired with the American Jane orangey-red rulers for the contrast!
The canvas fabric is actually cut from a painting drop cloth I scored on the clearance table at Home Depot for $6.99!
The lining is Art Gallery Nature Elements and it has a lovely drape and hand.
The only adjustment I made was to lengthen the strap because I wear my purses cross-body. The pattern was pretty easy to put together for a beginner.
