I'll post pictures later, but I totally figured out the whole french seam things. (Really, it's a wonder what happens when you stop and read the instructions. Miraculous, I say...)
Anyway, I'm almost done a second tote, which looks a whole lot more finished than the first one I did. Maybe by the third one, I'll say: wheeeeeee!
In the meanwhile, if anyone sees Santa, please tell him I wants yards and yards of this!
