Sweet Scallops Tote- My Version

Are you participating in the Sweet Scallops Tote Sew-Along from See Kate Sew?    I heard about it from Mandy at Sugarbee Crafts, and I'm so glad I did.  Emboldened by my success with the Layla bag I made here, I decided to try my sewing skills again.  I finished my bag last week, and I'm sharing it with you today!

Here it is:

I made the bag using Riley Blake fabric from the Sugar and Spice line, as well as some leftover canvas and lining I had from some previous projects.

Close up on the scallops:

Here's a view of the (boring) inside.

My 2 year old thinks it belongs to him.  He quite enjoyed filling it with toys.

But really, it's a nice piece of arm candy for me.  I'm excited to take it out and about with me.

It's not too late to join up- if you're a quick sewer, the link-up is on until NOVEMBER 15th!  Head on over here to see all the bags linked up!

I'm also linking up to some of my favorite parties this week- come party with me!
