Duffel Bag and Two Totes

Duffel bag and 2 Totes are done! The duffel bag is on my works in progress list needing to be finished. It only took 8 years to finish them.  When I dug out the partially started duffel bag I found that I had 2 tote bags cut out as well. So I just finished them even though they do not count toward projects on my list. It still feels great to have them completed after so many years. I had them stored in an Office Depot file box in my closet that only served to be a box to be moved when I wanted several boxes below it. Now not only do I have a finished project I don't need the extra box to shuffle past when getting to my other boxes.

The fabric was purchased by a friend of mine who said I will buy enough for both of us if you would make me the duffel bag. I made her duffel bag but not mine. Now I will give her a call and deliver to her a tote bag to go along with the duffel bag. I haven't seen her for a couple of years. She was on staff with me at the pregnancy center but due to Multiple Sclerosis she had to step down. She is a fighter working to walk again. I hope this bag will bring a smile to her face.

This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24


  1. Congrats on a couple of UFO's getting done! Even after all this time the fabrics are beautiful and I think your friend will really enjoy getting the extra bag!

  2. The beads on the duffle look lovely.
