Pink poodles tote from Vogue 7563

The second tote from Vogue 7563 is completed. I posted photos of the sunflower tote the other day.

The second version is also made from home dec fabric. This time in a bright pink with poodles scattered all over. Reminds me a bit of a 50s Paris theme. I used the same black and white check as accents as well as the same white home dec fabric for the lining.

This time I added a beaded trim underneath the bias binding on the pockets and at a portion of the top edge of the bag. I used a zipper foot to secure the bias binding, stitching slowly and as close as possible to the beaded trim.

On this bag I secured the inside pocket to the lining before adding the lining to the purse. The inside pocket on the previous version was only attached at the top of the pocket to the facing. I think the pocket will be more useful if it is secured in place.

Shhh! Don't tell Sophia that the dogs on the bag are poodles, not Maltese....
