Cathedral Windows tote bag
I said I would make a Christmas tote bag and that I did.
Well this is one of the few I actually have in mind to make before the holidays..
This was not an easy bag to make and I actually had to finish it by hand since the thickness of it kept overloading my sewing machine engine and I broke off several needles.
A cathedral windows by nature is thick but making it into a bag had its challenges.
I could not box off the corners because I did not want to cut off the bottom cathedrals so the bag is not roomy but it is roomy enough to carry my school books.
I had to put the trim on by hand because it was too much thickness for my machine.
Overall I am pleased.
Though I felt that the handle should be a cathedral windows handle, I did not feel like cutting up more squares so I made a quilted handle like the ones I make for my other bags.
