Tote of the Month: The Chameleon Bag (Machine Embroidery)



The Chameleon! This bag, which comes in 2 sizes (6 1/4" x 10 1/4" hoop--finished size 9" x 11 1/2" wide--and 7 1/4" x 11 3/4" hoop--finished size 10 1/2" x 13" wide) is a stand-alone purse, but then comes the fun--button on a new cover and the purse becomes entirely different!

Perfect for a day at the office and then a fun event after work, or a great item to take on vacation when there's not enough space to pack extra purses!  The diamond-quilted purses feature an inner and outer fabric and dense fleece batting and outer flap, which comes with steps to attach a magnetic snap in the hoop. The purses feature 2 large inner pockets, also created in the hoop. The front and back of the purse are created entirely in the hoop and then sewn together using conventional sewing techniques. The covers are created in the same way and feature channel quilting and 8 buttonholes for the fastening process.
