One lovely (and early!) Sunday morning in late October, a number of us gathered in a second floor room on the Langara campus. Our goal? To learn to make the fabulous Noodlehead 241 Tote bag. And leading us on this endeavour was self-described “Bag Lady” Krista Hennebury!
There were 14 VMQG members in attendance, and of course, true to form, a number of us wanted to alter the pattern to suit our own tastes. Bunch of rule-breakers, we are.
We all got down to work right away…
Krista also took some time to show everyone who was interested how to make a slider for a longer strap, to turn the shoulder bag version of the 241 tote into a cross-body bag.
After a long day and with excellent instruction from Krista… we had a bunch of nearly completed 241 totes! (I’m sure they’re all done now, right? Everyone went straight home and finished their totes up? *nudge nudge*)
I bullied everyone into one last class photo to show off the labours of the day. Thanks to Krista for taking this photo so I could actually be in the picture! Look at the smiles on all those happy tote-makers!
