Mini Professional Tote. I had admired the (original) larger version of this design, but when I saw it made up, I decided that it was just too large for me. Then came the mini version, and this was definitely something that I could see as a convenient bag for travel. Then I waffled. That's a lot of work for a bag! My idea of a bag is something that I can put together in a few hours at most, not days. But all those convenient pockets were definitely tempting. Although dozens of pieces of a complicated design for a coat or dress don't scare me one bit, for some reason, I find dozens of little square and rectangular pieces for pockets and parts of a bag rather daunting. Nevertheless, after much deliberation, I finally acquired the pattern, the fabric, and all the other bits and bobs required. And then all of this sat for, oh, a few years. At the beginning of summer I finally decided it was definitely time.
