I bet you can't guess what I've been up to. Or maybe you can! I just can't seem to stop myself. Every time I finish one tote bag, another one just about starts itself! Now why can't cleaning toilets happen that easily? You know, once you finish cleaning one, you have the overwhelming desire to rush right into the next bathroom and do it all over again. Yeah, not in this house either!
Anyway, this bag I just finished is made using a charm pack and one fat quarter of Sewing Room Social fabric designed by Jacquelynne Steves for Henry Glass Fabrics, plus some yardage of a delicious Kona green. Jacquelynne's blog is The Noble Wife
and she always has something fun and creative going on over there. Stop in and say hi, but not before you check out this bag...
It was a super bright and sunny day here today, so the outdoor pictures look a little washed out, but the colors and prints in this fabric line are just gorgeous. The detail in the designs of Jacquelynne's fabrics are just amazing, so fresh and sweet and lovely. You can click on the pictures to get a closer look.
Both the inside and the outside of this tote bag are quilted, as well as the handles.
This bag is large enough to use as a tote bag for hauling your sewing projects to and from your sewing circle or guild meetings, but it's also not so big that you couldn't use it as a large purse, if you like to carry a large purse!
The inside is made with yardage of this wonderful soft green Kona solid, and boasts two large side pockets and a swivel hook on a strap to hold your keys. Also included is a matching scissor fob, seen at the bottom of the bag, to keep track of your scissors at your next stitchery gathering.
If you like this bag, you can click over to my Etsy shop for more information about it, including measurements. As usual, if you are local, you can save yourself shipping costs by just emailing me if you are interested in this bag or any other item in my shop.
Now I must get back to my sewing room. I think I hear another tote bag calling me, or is it a quilt I am hearing this time? We'll see!
