Field Study Tote Final Finish!

I was finally able to get a few shots of my finished Field Study Tote yesterday. This fancy picture taking-thing is not my strong point, but they’re not too bad this time!  If you head over to Betz White today you’ll see a great round-up of FST’s from gals who were in the sew-along as well.  It’s amazing what a little fabric change up can do to a pattern! Here are the final shots of my FST. Enjoy!     {Read More}

WIP Wednesday – A Tote, A Bitty Box & Applique ladies

WIP Wednesday – Sew-Along Edition
