I am participating in the "The SINGER One™ Sewing Machine Idea Board Challenge". I am planning to make a tote bag for my "Simple Fall Sewing" project.I was inspired by the fall colors of leaves you find in autumn. I made a sample sketch of how I want my tote bag to look like. I will be using felt as my backing.I will be adding green ribbon as a closure to my tote bag. I will be using the automatic 1-step buttonhole stitch, if I win the fabulous SINGER One™ sewing machine.(keeping my fingers crossed). Then I will add the brown button to prevent things from falling out the tote bag. I am planning to use variegated embroidery floss to do some cross stitch and chain stitch on the lower corner of the tote. I pinned up the chosen fabric together on to the board using my sketch as a guide. I really enjoyed making the idea board for this challenge. Standing back and taking a look at my idea board, it is amazing how the fall leaves inspired my tote bag project.I would like to thank Stitch Craft Magazine and Singer Sewing Company for hosting this fun challenge. It really got my creative juices flowing.
