This week's featured project from Patchwork, Please! is a lovely, roomy tote that I wanted to have finished in time to use this weekend when I wander the booths at
 ( I look forward to this annual event and am making a list of "must-haves" ;o) 
 
It's a beautiful design, as well as an easy tote to make.  The hardest part was choosing which fabric to go with that delicious linen  (I finally went with some stashed treasures that would match my coat ;o).
 
 I love how linen goes with everything!
 
 
Check out Amy's clever design idea for the interior pocket!  Such a cute touch to jazz up a pocket.

 
Then there's the self-covered buttons for exterior pockets - another detail that I find irresistible.

 
Now I have a pretty new tote to fill (with fabric and threads this weekend...;o).

 
 


Let's pop over to  A Quilter's Table to have a look at the
other versions made this week in the Zakka-Along 2.0!

My new tote happens to be one item on my Selfish Sewing list,
