|Globetrotter Tote from Shabby Apple|
The thought of recreating it did cross my mind. I figured I'd have to draft my own pattern. I had no desire to do that. I caught a case of the lazies. I wrote the idea down in my sewing notebook for later use.
But in a zippy twist of fate, I came across a pattern.

This.is.awesome. I am going to make this bag. I have some canvas in the stash already. I also thought about making it out of plaid coating fabric or perhaps even tweed. Denver Fabrics has some for around $14 a yard. I'm looking for leather handles etc.
I'm keeping my projects to a minimum this month. I plan on making this dress for New Year's Eve. I already have my shoes. I have my copy of Burda Style magazine just waiting to be traced. I ordered swatches of crepe back satin. I'm excited.
I only have the zipper and hem left on my Colette Peony. I could have finished it tonight but I'm suffering from a case of the Mondays. Once I finish that, I will get started on my bag and my New Year's Eve dress.
We'll see how this goes.
