Saturday, our son, Dan, graduated from Univ. of NC School of the Arts, with a degree in Fine Arts. His specialty is Technical Direction. We are so excited for him as his first job will be an Automation Director for the entertainment on a Carnival Cruise Ship. I'm seeing a cruise in my future.
On to the Show & Tell part of this post. I have received so many wonderful pictures of the Professional Totes that you have made. It is so much fun for me to see all of your creativity and excitement making my totes. I love the fabrics and it makes me want to make one more just like it.
I bought the Professional Tote pattern at my local quilt shop, and I LOVE it! So far I have made six of them, and each one is my new favorite. The latest is my jungle bag, with machine embroidered designs on both sides. I've given three bags away as gifts, and have plans for more.

Please find attached photos of my first Professional Tote. What a great pattern. Yes it does have lots of pieces but you instructions are perfect and clear to follow. What I liked the most was no seam was to hard for my fussy Pfaff. And that's saying something.

Betty made this blue paisley tote with patio cloth. The cloth is weather proof, and fade proof, etc. What a great idea! Betty made this one for her sister-in-law who lives in FL.
I made this for a teacher who must carry her things back and forth from building to building. Hope you like it, as I
love, love, love this pattern. Deb Tuck.
Make sure you check out the fussy cut dots at the top of all the pockets. Great job!
I just wanted to tell you I love this pattern sew very much. I have made many gifts out of this pattern. It is very popular in our area and I just wanted to pass that on to you and show you a few that I have done.
Good morning Laura
Attached are photos of my "Diaper Bag" Professional Bag. It was fun AND a challenge, but well worth it. Love the end result.
Judy Clay from Montrose, CO sent me this great picture of her "Easy Stripper" group posing with all of the Professional Totes they have made. Her friend Ludene has made 13 or14 Professional Totes.
There are 8 ladies in this picture and I have been able to count as least 16 totes in the picture. You "strippers" are very busy!!
Thank you so much for sharing all your wonderful pictures! I love them all!!
