Embroidered Tote Bag

I told you the other day that I was taking classes for my new embroidery machine and also, the software. I had my first software class a couple of weeks ago.

With a lot of help from the teacher, we created that design! I was so excited about it that I came home and made a tote bag using the design. The tote bag is just what I needed to carry my laptop and all the rest of my stuff to software class.

I did the embroidery on the fabric and then cut out for the tote around it.
(I made it like I did this tote, but used all one piece of fabric instead of two for the outside.)

I did have one little glitch when I first started the embroidery with the first 2 pins (bottom left side). I somehow figured out how to correct it and the rest went perfectly smooth.

It's nice and roomy on the inside with a fabric covered cardboard bottom and 2 big pockets.

I made a separate bag for my laptop to go in with lots of padding and fits in the tote.

It, also, has a pocket on the inside.

The little bag really doesn't match, but it works for all my USB sticks. I found it at Joann's for only a dollar, so hey, why not?

Have an awesome Friday!

Wow wow wow, Terri. That turned out amazingly great. What a bag. Love the red. Love the stitched letters - everything. Thank you so much for linking it (and your other submissions) up at SHARE IT, at Pinned! A new party will open tomorrow and I sure hope to seeing you there again!
