Yaay! I finished it. I didn't redo the lining. I made it work. I placed a piece of fabric around the rim and sort of tucked the outside part just a bit so it would work. Sorry if that makes no sense. Sister Boyd's comments gave me the idea to put a little pocket inside for holding pencils or whatnot.
I think it will make a cool scripture tote. I think that was a terrific idea. Thanks Sister Boyd.
so perhaps you'll see me sporting this to church on Sunday....actually, I probably won't carry it around until I get beyond using the diaper bag, or the boys start walking. It's too hard to carry one bag and two boys, forget about two bags and two boys.
So, I like the thought of creating cute scripture totes to sell. I just need to perfect the pattern. What do you think. Just one size--large and roomy for scriptures and church books, or a smaller size too, for just scriptures?
