Another Tote Bag

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. ; )

I love your tote bag! One of the things I was thinking of giving my mom is a tote she can take to the library. I really want to make it myself, but I'm not sure I have the ability to plan it out. We'll see.

I really enjoy seeing the craft and sewing projects you take on. especially since my life is a little bit too busy for it (and I am a little bit lacking in the talent department) You've definitely been blessed with a good eye for things
