For Pleat's Sake Tote by Cathyj
I found this pattern
while bumming around online and fell in love with it. I used grommets instead of the handles the pattern called for. For the strap, I cut a 4" wide strip of lining fabric, folded it in half length-wise, ironed, then folded the edges to the center iron mark and ironed again. I put 1" strapping inside and used a 1/8" top stitch to hold it in place.
I'm happy with the way it turned out, it didn't take long at all. This was my first time using grommets, these were from the home dec area of Joann's...very easy to use, no special tools needed.
