OMG a UFO from 2013 is ready to share...

My One Monthly Goal for April was to finish
a tote I started almost 3 years ago.
I struggled with the written instructions and it took a bit
for my old brain to finally get it.
Finally it did and it all came together.
I am so happy to cross another UFO off my long list.
 The inside has a large zippered center pocket
a divided side pocket with a key fob
and a pleated pocket with 3 sections...
one section has a velcro flap.
 
 The top of the bag has a zipper closure...I like that.
Did I fight with this UFO? Yes!!
Will I make it again...Yes!!
I would love to make the mini version.
I am in need of a new hand bag and it would be perfect.
Hope it doesn't take as long to finish the mini.
I'll be making a Tammy sewing kit and maybe a few extra
pieces to complete my travelling sewing bag.

The front of the Tammy bag will have a
 sweet embroidered front.
It is a hand embroidery pattern from
a book by Anni Downs.
called The Simple Life.

Anni is an Australian designer and
 the owner of  Hatched and Patched.

I'm linking with
  Heidi at Red Letter Quilts - OMG
and 
Amanda Jean at Crazy Mom Quilts - Finish it up Friday

Have a wonderful weekend!!

Oh the insides look so great! I love a lot of pockets though I do search for stuff inspire of them! My goal for the month was also a bag but I think I need a day more to finish it! Does this bag pattern have a name? I am exploring making bags and want to try out different patterns!

This is amazing! After finishing my tote last month, I know now just how much time these take! Hopefully bags get easier with experience because I really want to make a few more. Thanks for linking up and congrats on your wonderful finish:)

I admire you for sticking with finishing the tote, considering the instructions were hard to follow. But the end result is wonderful so it was definitely worth it. Love the idea of the Tammy bag to match. That is a cute embroidery and will be lovely. ( I have actually done that one!)
