Great dresses! Looking at those makes me wish for warmer weather. I just bought a bunch of fabric also and need to get on it. I have been side tracked with a renewed interest in cross stitch! Like I don't have a million yards of fabric to get crafty with.

Thanks for sharing your projects, you have inspired me!

Oh and I wanted to mention that I used to have the same couch as you! :bg:

I never thought of doing tote bags like that!
Was the outer fabric one piece that you added handles to or two pieces you stitched together? The idea of velcro is great. Is the outer fabric one layer or two? Are those just the basic zip lock baggies? What size baggies did you use? I'm just full of questions - sorry.
My dd has a couple of the "snap-on" dolls and I'd like to sew up a few of the totes not to mention getting a handle on all the crayons and markers. lol
Thanks for any help!!
