My sewing project last night was making this wine tote. Several weeks ago one of the lunch bunch girls brought me a wine tote and asked me if I could monogram it for her, but, it was made out of that foam stuff and not very durable. I don't know what you call it, but it's thin and you can buy it in sheets a craft stores. Maybe it's called Fun Foam. It's definitely not suitable for sewing or monogramming because it will tear on the stitching line, which was evident on the tote she brought. Of course, after a quick inspection I said to her, "I can't monogram it but, I think I can make this!" And so I did. I practiced on one for her making it out of material with lighthouses and using navy belting for the handles. Really cute for the summer! But, loving pink and green the way I do, I decided to make my daughter one and this is the final product. It wasn't hard to make at all, just a little tough sewing in some areas because I put a thin layer of batting between the layers for a cushion and it was a little thick. So, tell me what you think! I think this would make a really neat gift for someone...especially if you added the ChocoVine! You might even see this in a Giveaway pretty soon!
