Well another day of snow up here in the north country. We have about 5 inches of new snow now. At least we can be grateful that we don't have as much as last year. Last year we had over 110 inches of snow!!
While looking at all the snow around here all the time I get real anxious for spring to come. Now we don't have the really nice springtime's that most of you all do, but at least the snow and ice are gone. I decided to make a pink tote bag with pretty pastel pink colors in celebration of Valentine's Day and springtime.
First I had to cut 44 4x4" squares
Then I had to line up 22 squares for each side
After sewing the two sides and cutting a pink lining to match the sides I attached fusible fleece to them, added handles and then walla........a bag!
I really like making these patchwork bags. I have finished lots of different one's. Think I will put them in my shop and do some more for the summer markets around here. Last year they sold really well. I could really use a new one myself for a new sewing bag.....hmmmmm.....which color should I make??
Thanks for stopping. Got a new recipe for you on the left under Recipe Exchange. Sounds good...might have to try it.
Take care. :)
