Purple Project Bag

In the Challenge Chain for Fun
I chose PURPLE and made my friend a large purple project bag. I used the Big Color Blocked Tote tutorial from SewCanShe.

It’s her favourite colour and a project I’ve had in mind for several months so this challenge was perfect and got me going. She’s also going through a very rough time in life and I hope this is a bit of a pick me up. I’m going to deliver it to her door tomorrow and then have a visit from her sidewalk.

It has a recessed zipper … something I was afraid of until I found this tutorial

and the inside is purple too

and I attached my tag for a fun touch

Excellent work! The colour is intense, wow.
I’m going to check out the tutorial you linked to, I need help with this zipper application. The last tutorial I followed for it was less than satisfying.

That’s what I was thinking! It reminds me of the purple bag you made me years ago!

Me too … with shipping and the exchange rate, it’s still usually cheaper than buying fabric here.
