finished!

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?

you are very welcome for the idea, love the pocket for pens, that's perfect! those bags are adorable!!! i would do 2 sizes, if you want my opinion :) because my girls- well, kids- would need a smaller one... but me and other moms would want a slightly bigger one because we have manuals and snacks and stuff. hey, you could even branch out and do a BIG one for a diaper bag! :)

It's beautiful! I just love your sewing projects.

And while you're doing pockets, make sure one is for a cell phone - it's always nice to be able to find your phone when you need it! Good job - I think you've got a business ready to roll!

How pretty! I love it. I can't sew worth a lick.

I can't have just a scripture tote. I'm that chick who walks into church with a big ol bag that holds... (wait for it).... my manual, planner, scriptures, husbands scriptures, assorted pens, pencils and scissors (?) along with any other random items handed to me by people at church. It's kind of a whale of a bag... But, it get's the job done.

So cute. And yes, make a scripture sized one. Way cuter than any I've seen out there.

You're awesome!

That looks really nice as a scripture tote. I would think both sizes of bags would be nice!
