Well as I am going to go to London in June, I better take a bag, well probably 3, but I'll start with this one!
Sewing is definitely good therapy; I really needed to just get my head down and make something on Thursday; so with my lovely Christmas present Echino and my Noodlehead Go Anywhere Tote pattern, it was thankfully a no-brainer!
I found this pattern easier than the 241 Tote. Due to the heavier weight of the Kokka linen, I didn't need to add interfacing to every piece, and there are no tight curves to negotiate. My only gripe was turning through of the handles, (far superior brains than mine would know why this method is better than just folding and double folding), my fingers just aren't that strong, but I coped.
So this isn't just a 'Go Anywhere' tote, this is a 'Going there' tote!! Woo hoo!
PS. Things are starting to hot up over at the FQ London 2012 flickr group; if you are heading to the Retreat, make sure you join up and don't miss out; there's a Secret Name Badge swap to currently sign up for, a Fat Quarter swap to start thinking about and much much more.
