I made this tote bag on Saturday for a friend at work for her birthday. The pattern is by Me and My Sister and is called Roxanne. It was an ok bag to make but not my favorite one to make. The handles turned out skinny because I was so not going to spend a huge amount of time trying to turn out the handles, don't like doing handles that way. It was fine though because I like the skinny handles better. The dark purple fabric for the bottom is by Minick & Simpson called Halloween Night. The light purple with the Apothecary jars is called Night Shade by Tula Pink.
One frustrating thing was the lining was a pain to put on as it barely fit. In fact while sewing it together, the top cuff got a small tuck in the process. This is what I came up with to hide that little boo boo. Put the label over it, genius right.
Oh and the handles ended up being a bit of a different distance on one side of the bag than the other. When I pointed this out to hubby, he quickly got out his measuring tape to verify. Oh well, not ripping everything out now for 2/8". Not perfect but done and maybe my friend will like it anyway.
