Do you ever get the desire to just start a new project, even though you have several underway, and others that you really should be working on? C'mon, be truthful.. I'm sure I'm not the only one this happens to...
(Sometimes you just need a little "variety"... at least that's my theory)
The urge hit on Monday evening to make a new totebag. Since I'm off to Maine tomorrow to attend the Pine Tree Quilters' Guild state show "Maine Quilts 2015", I thought I really should have a new totebag "just in case" I make any purchases and need a bag to carry them in. ... Okay, I KNOW I really don't NEED a new totebag, but what's need got to do with it? Since I already had the pattern and all the fabrics (all purchased together last January in Florida) I figured this was a good
You might remember a while back I made this totebag - same pattern - the Fiji Tote by Pink Sand Beach Designs. I really like this pattern- it is so well done. Clear instructions, laid out step by step with colour photos for every step. It goes together slick as a whistle, everything fits... NO problems at all. It is not difficult. I love the Peltex in the bottom to give it a nice squared base, and the sides have interfacing part way up as well as the fusible fleece, so it holds its shape well, and stands on its own. So I started it Monday night, and finished it up last night. Tada... what do you think?
I love quilting, and have plenty of material witnesses.
