Well, perhaps this one is more like a quilted purse than a tote bag. I used some scraps from one of my Celtic fair quilts to made this little bag. I sewed two quilt blocks together, and I made the flap, lining, and pocket from some scraps. I finished it off with an antique wooden button.
Considering that it was my first time making a bag with a flap, it turned out well, even though it has a few puckery places.
It is reversible too. Here is the reversed front. This time I used a pearly antique button. Can you tell I like antique buttons? ; )
And the reversed back with its striped pocket. I had planned for the pocket to be on the front, but it didn't turn out that way, and I think I like it better this way after all.
This was another fun little side project. ; )
