After being at home for a few days (and after all the wedding fuss), I was in dire need of a quilt fix and what better way than making a tote bag. Have you seen all the bags on the web lately? Aren’t they just awesome!
A while back, I saw this bag at http://www.welshquilter.blogspot.com/ (June posts) and just knew that it was a someday project. Well, that day arrived and here is my version.
The bag was made slightly bigger than the pattern, which suits me fine as it is great for traveling. The handle pattern is new to me and I just love the look and feel of them. With the bit left over from the handles (which were made longer), I made a tab to close the bag and secured the tag with Velcro.
This is a bag that I will certainly make again. Many thanks, Andrea for the great tutorial!
Four Seasons Swap
I have my partner’s name for the swap but it has to remain a secret until my friend receives her quilt. But, I can show you what her quilt will look like as it progresses along. More to come on that!
Have a great day!
