MADE UP YOUR MIND ABOUT WHAT YOU WILL BE SEWING ON YOUR ELNA IN 2013?

Perhaps you’d like to consider trying your hand at this practical and versatile tote bag??

This pic was sent in by Cheryl Paul of Saskatoon, Canada: she was as pleased as punch with her PROFESSIONAL TOTE. The pattern she used is from Creative Thimble. Cheryl tells me that she preferred using mostly the  Single Acufeed flex foot. (available for the NEW ELNA 760 – this is a 9mm Acufeed Flex or Integrated Dual feed foot – the narrow one which makes it so easy to get into those tight little spots while still using a walking foot or even feed function).  She also used the zipper foot for some of the parts as the zippers are sandwiched between the lining & the top fabric.

She was really pleased with the way it turned out and says she would not change a thing in the pattern instructions: “it looks so nice and everything fit like a glove”.  Cheryl has plans to make another one in black & white with a sewing & music print on the fabric(s).

Thank you for sharing this project with us, Cheryl.

Maybe this project might inspire you further to plan & set goals for what you will be sewing on your ELNA  sewing machine in 2013??!!
