Cabo Bucket Tote & Heavenly Textured Handbag

It is always such a pleasure to complete a sewing project. Today I have double satisfaction as I completed two purses that were in progress. In the photograph, the bag on the left is the Cabo Bucket Tote made with a cheerful winter scene of cardinals and other winter birds. On the right is the Heavenly Textured Handbag (I adapted the pattern a little bit as I did not have any Texture Magic™ on hand).

Which do I like best? The Cabo Bucket Tote wins hands down and not just because I love the patten on the fabric. The Cabo has more pocket, it has a nice little magnet mechanism to give the purse a nice shape, and it uses D-rings to attach the handles which are a nice touch.

Cabo Bucket Tote

Had a nice time at the quilting class at The Common Thread in Dahlonega recently. Cindi Clark was a fine instructor and we (the five students) had an informative, yet enjoyable time.

The fabrics were a pleasant variety. For a long time, I’ve desired a special wintery purse, and I think I found just the fabric. I had to leave class before I completed my project, but all I need to do are three steps… Attach the lining and stitch a decorative seam across the top and sew on the button. I expect I’ll find time to complete the Tote this evening and will post a pic promptly. Here is a view of the fabric I choose.
