I'm participating in the Stash Contest at patternreview.com. Each year, my goal is to beat my previous year's goal. I still need to check back to see what I need to beat this year. These are my first finished projects from Keyka Lou. I made two grocery totes using a canvas purchased at a thrift store a couple years ago, a not-the-best dye job on the gray cotton lining, and a midweight denim (scraps) for the handles. I also used a bold straight stitch (#2 stitch on my pfaff) on the handles of one of the bags to make the top-stitching stand out more. At approximately one yard each, I now have two yards to add for the year 2012.
