Finished Just in Time!

I made it.  I finished up my Super Tote yesterday.  I am really happy with how it turned out and excited to put it to use.  Putting it all together did include a few new things for me.  The first time trying a recessed zipper, and I also made the piping for the front pocket.  Making piping wasn't as hard as I imagined and I really like how it finishes off the front. 

 
I was unsure if I wanted to attempt the recessed zipper, as I haven't had much luck in putting in zippers in the past.  I am glad I went for it and think it turned out pretty good.  I have been wanting to try my hand at some other projects with zippers so hopefully they will go easier now. 
I did add two inside pockets as well as the outer pocket.
 
 
 
 
This was my February goal for ALYoF.  I am number 111 on the goal setting post.
 
This also makes finish number 2 for my first quarter goals.  I really need to get busy on those goals.  I can't believe how fast the last two months have gone and I am sure March is going to go just as fast.
