First Finish for 2011

I have wanted to make the Multi-Tasker Tote from Anna Maria Horner for almost a year now.  With Holiday gifts done, I was able to make some great headway just after Christmas and then finally finished the bag today.  

First thing I learned - this bag is BIG!  I have to learn to look at finished measurements to get an idea of how big what I am intending to make really is.  This sounds dumb but I have no idea if I will actually use this bag as I hardly carry anything around.  Cell phone, sunglasses, wallet and a pen - that is all I carry in my purse.  Cutting this pattern in half would have worked better for me, but I do love the bag.  I used Anna Maria Horner's new Innocent Crush fabric for both the exterior and interior fabrics and they were (of course) lovely to work with.  I enjoyed working with the pattern (first time use of a AMH pattern) and found it relatively easy to understand - I stopped a few times and had to read and read again to truly understand what was instructed.
