Coffee Anyone?

I finished a Super Shopper yesterday; a friend wanted a tote to give as a Christmas gift. She asked for bright, bold and fun. I put two groupings together and sent her the photos. I offered her a choice of the fabs my trusty Guide Dog for the Color Blind is displaying at this link ... or this grouping:

She went with mine. I mean "with the coffee prints." Here's a look at the front:

...and the back:

The straps are over-the-shoulder length, like on Shelli's. I think the yellow/gold really adds some excitement to the tote!

Here's a shot that shows you the pocket details and the quilting.

I used a King Tut variegated thread this time; it was my first time with the King. Loved it. It's 923 "Fahl Green". Very nice. Here's another look:

A very pleasant quilting experience. Here's a look at the strap detail:

The strap color really works. I tried others, but they were sort of "decaf in a caffeinated world". :) They got lost, really. These are just as bold as the bag, but don't compete. "A good blend", in keeping with our coffee talk.

Here's a look inside:

I actually forgot I had this fab, yet it's a companion piece to some of the others I used! I was SO happy to "find" it. I bought it for a Stack and Whack that I know I'll never do and it was just PERFECT for the lining of this Super Shopper! Yea!

Thanks for the order - and thanks for reading!

Wow! I adore those colours, wonderfully vibrant choices and the straps are beautiful in the gold.

Thank you for taking the time to show us!
