I am super excited (scared) to be participating in my first sewing challenge. Its the Solids-only Tote Challenge being hosted by Rikka from Ricochet and Away and Keren from Sew La Vie you can check it out here http://ricochetandaway.blogspot.com/2011/10/solids-only-tote-challenge-homepage.html and when the entries are in (after November 30th) head over to check out the wonderful bags created (there are some super talented people participating).
Back to me being excited (very frightened) to be doing this, I have left myself one week to design and sew my entry! I want it to be a bag that will scream SUMMER! and I want it to be made from my latest favorite color combo, yellow, white and grey, so pretty together! to have a few cute little pleats for detail and lastly I want it to be a bag big enough for a trip to the pool but not completely out of place for a trip to town shopping. You think I can accomplish all that? Probably not, but it can't hurt to try! So I made a little start yesterday, here are some pictures so you can see where I'm at thus far
Right now, I'm off to work on my bag, aaahhhhh!
