This is my second 241 tote. I made another 241 for my younger sister's birthday, and while at the time I was wishing I had mine first, I was able to take my former experience and make this one perfect.
This is my first time using Melody Miller fabric. It's also the only piece I own, and I had been hoarding it for some time. Once again, the construction was lovely, but the interfacing--my word. This time, I used a midweight interfacing. By the time I finished fusing all of that horrible stuff, I think I finally had a system. I still wouldn't call it a success though.
And hot pink topstitching for the win. This purse is metallic, ostentatious, and won't match much, but I love love love it, and I'm excited to have something shiny to start off my week! The problem is, it's so pretty...I don't want to use it!
I'm linking up with TGIFF, this week hosted by Laura at Quokka Quilts.
