Creative Tote Bag on the Serger

This tote bag is really a sampler.  Each panel represents a different stitch or technique.  On the completion of all the panels it can be sewn together to form this decorative Tote Bag.

Techniques include putting in a zip with Decorative Flatlock stitch, using the Ruffler Foot, ALLthe serger stitches, weaving in flatlock, quilting with chain stitch, pintucks, imitation piping, piping, serger crochet and lots and lots of lovely 8 weight decorative thread.  Mainly  Sue Spargo Razzle and Dazzle and Wonderfil Sizzle, YLI Candlelight, Pearl Crown and Designer 7.  
Please note that the black and white flowers are designed by Jennie Rayment who kindly gave me permission to use them in my pattern.
There is a 50 page downloadable Tutorial for this bag available on my website store, `Creative Tote Bag`.
