Today is tote bag day. I am participating in the Charming Guys & Girls Quilt Club sewing day. I think there are 25 participants. If you want to take a look at the totes or purses that others are working on, pay a visit here. There is a list on the right side bar of those taking part.
Below is a photo of most of the fabric that will be going into my tote bag project. The stripe is a Moda twill so it should make a sturdy tote. The tote is meant to carry quilting supplies for taking to a class.
The pattern that I am using is from a Quilt Sampler magazine from 2004 and was designed by someone at The Quilted Crow in Boxborough, Massachusetts. The finished size is listed as 16"x16"x4". I prepped one of the outside pockets last night. I needed a quilted square of fabric to applique the wool pieces onto. In the photo, the flower isn't laying on the stem so it looks a bit off kilter. You can see what it looks like for real later on today if you stop back.
I have a couple things to do and then I will be back to working on the project. Have a great day.
