Well, you might have to get your skates on if you want to sew this bag for mum this Sunday! My submission for Oh My Handmade.com this month is a tote bag tutorial. It's hosted by Google online where you may view a slideshow, print, or download a PDF. (press menu on the slide below to view the link: Simple & Elegant Tote, then once it launches in full screen press 'actions' for downloading options).
I hope the instructions make sense. Please email me if you need any help.
