Weekender Tote Sew-a-long: Straps and Outer Shell

Our sew a long is in it's 3rd week, with Straps and Outer Shell being this weeks goal. 
We are only 3 weeks away from finishing our totes!
Straps and finish Outer Shell- - - - - -May 16- May 22
Pockets and Magnet Clasp - - - - - - May 23- May 29
Lining and Finish the Tote- - - - - - - May 30- June 5
I love seeing how each Weekender Tote is taking shape. What started as just 2 dimensional  fabric is now shaping into a 3 dimensional beautiful bag. As always I have more awesome pictures from our Sew Spoiled Weekender Tote Project Flickr group to show you.

This is a picture from 9Crafty11's photostream. This is part of Step 5 being completed.

What a useful tool! 9Crafty11 used a steam press to fuse her interfacing to her fabrics! I know that was truly part of last weeks goal but I had to show you her picture!

ksequeira514 has finished her outer shell panels! 
I love how you centered the turquoise print, Beautiful! 


This week we will make our straps in step 4.

Step 5, Squarebag posted this amazing picture of the placement of her straps. 

In Step 5 we will finish making the outer shell panels and topstitch across the boarders.

Cut off the excess with this template.
then proceed to Step 6.
I can wait to see more pictures! I am so lucky to be working with all of you in the Sew Spoiled Weekender Tote Sew a long.
Happy Sewing!
