Lucy's Crab Shack Tote Bags ~ Summer in a Bag!

Here are my first creations using Sweetwater's Lucy's Crab Shack fabric by Moda...two fun tote bags for custom orders! I made each one a little different, but there are lots of similarities between them too! Take a look...

Lucy's Crab Shack Tote Bags ~ Summer in a Bag!Of course, they are both tote bags, and both were made by piecing together charm squares of this fun fabric. For one of them, I used all the pinks available because I know the person who ordered it loves pink, and on the other one, I used the plaids and dark background squares mixed with all the other fun fabrics for nice variety.

Each bag also has a strap on the inside with a swivel hook at the end to keep track of keys. The handles and the key strap were made using the same word fabric with names of famous beaches. Very cute!

Two fun bags ordered by two fun people!

Next I'll show you what I did with the leftovers from these two bags. Here's a hint...my 7 year old Grace loved it and wore it all day yesterday!

Happy Stitching!
