Design Wall Monday, Jan. 26, 2015

My design wall looks exactly the same this week as it did last week. It still has part of Texas Chain laid out, waiting for the sewing to start.
The reason that it's still waiting is that I finally did something I've been wanting to do for ages, and that's make myself a new tote bag. The colours aren't quite as red as showing in these pictures. It took me most of last week to get it done. I'm not sure if you can see them, or not, but on either side of the pocket there are a couple of metal "D" loops.
 And this is what they are for. To clamp my small purse/wallet so that I can carry them both at the same time, and not have to go digging around to the bottom of the tote bag to find it. It's an idea that's been kicking around inside my head that has finally gotten out.  I'm linking up to Judy's Design Wall Monday


  1. Those D-rings do blend in well! Great idea for the little purse to attach outside for easy access!

  2. I just made myself a purse too. Wish I'd seen this about the D clamps, and I might have added those. But there's always next time. Love the colors!!

  3. I love it. Really like the material you used.

  4. What a brilliant idea! Love your fabrics too!

  5. What a brilliant idea! Love your fabrics too!


I love reading all your comments, and am grateful for each one. I try very hard to answer them all, but lately I haven’t quite been able to answer all of them.
