Hmm, how hard are these tote bags Virginia? I have a ton pinned too but am so scared to buy a pattern and try. Do they have zippers? By the end of this year I want to master putting in a zipper! I have NEVER done it but for some reason, I want to learn.
I don't always pay attention to price. Usually I'm shopping the calicos. Every now and then I find other fabrics that catch my attention, then I look at price. If I have coupons, I don't worry about the cost.
