Traveler Tote

I joined Instagram last year
(have I mentioned that I love it?)

Things seem to pop up there all the time 
that inspire and entice.

One such thing was the Traveler Tote from Ellison Lane.
It's a free pattern/tutorial and there was a blog link
with wonderful prizes but only for U.S residents. soon as I saw it I knew I HAD to make one.
I knew who it was for too.

A lady I work with had a big birthday...
She's had 49 of them before this one.
i know she loves black and white.

This bag is massive!
2 pockets on the outside and 2 pockets on the inside.

I even used some of my most precious linen for this baby.

It was loved and appreciated by the birthday gal.
She had to fight her daughter off - that's news of success in m book.

Apparently I am to make another one aren't I Sharon?

  6. That is a lovely bag and it looks so very useful too. xx debbie

  7. I am intrigued by Instagram, but my teen has informed me that to join I would have to upgrade to a smart phone and data plan. I am really trying to not go there because I feel there are some times that I want to be disconnected and my iPad and computer should be enough. Plus, I take terrible photographs!


Thanks for visiting - I would love to hear from you.
