Today has been a successful day. Four loads of washing and one bag - FINISHED.
Add the 241 Tote by Noodlehead pattern download, one fat quarter of penguin fabric, 1/2 yard/metre each of green and navy solid, magnetic closure and you have tote bag bliss. This pattern has an internal patch pocket, and incase you can't tell, the green bits on the sides are the external pockets. Went together like a dream...
