Tote bag

I made a cute little tote bag. Seems like everything I make is coming from my Bliss fabric win. I'm trying to see how much I can get out of those fat quarters, and I still have lots left....

Anyway, here's a picture of the tote:



And here you can see how BIG it is:


Thought it made a really sweet key chain. I got this pattern from some really nice tutorials at Em ay kay ee. I have been into bag making for some reason. Using up that Bliss fabric, lol.

In my present quilting frenzy, I have made quite a mess of my work area. But, I never get tired of cleaning up the same space over and over. I always find something I thought I had lost.



Every time I want to put a quilt on the frame, I have to find somewhere to put all the "stuff" I have put there. So, maybe today will be the day for cleaning up.

Might as well get to it....unless I find something else to do.

Later,
WilmaNC

I love the tiny tote - saw that pattern on her site and tempted. I want to come play in your sewing room - I would be so comfortable in all the 'creative mess'.

Maybe I need to have a studio cleaning day. I have misplaced my embroidery kit and several applique pieces I worked on last week. The kit has been missing for 3 weeks so I am going to make up another one (then it will turn up). And today I re-prepped the applique pieces. Fortunately I like the new pieces better. ;-)

I'm a new follower - Madame Samm's guest blogger post sent me your way and I'm so glad it did! Mary Ann @ http://www.rocknquilts.blogspot.com I'm just about to put up a quilting frame for my mid arm in my basement - maybe you have tips for me? Thanks!

Wilma, thanks for that link! Cool blog to follow. That bag is adorable.
And, I empathize.... good luck with getting the sewing area re-organized, ;O)

Always fun to take a peek into someone else's sewing room - looks like lots of creating takes place there!

The tiny tote is adorable. I'm so glad I'm not the only one who uses my quilting frame for extra storage ....

I love your "self-portrait" quilt. My guild is having a challenge on "Who are you?" Thanks for the inspirations.
