I was getting ready to cut up some of those girlie girl fabrics I got at the Quilt Expo when I got a message from a friend, Froggi Donna, asking me if I had time to make her a tote bag before her hubby goes in for some surgery. I had made her a bag some time ago, but it is too small to hold all her electronic gadgets.
We chatted back and forth on Facebook, with me posting pictures of fabrics I have on hand in the colors she wanted, and she decided on which ones to use. Then I set to work, to get this knocked out before Fabgrandpa and I go to Cherokee, North Carolina on a short road trip, and before her husband, Stu, has his surgery appointment.
I worked all day today, because we’re leaving tomorrow. I was almost finished but then the zipper didn’t work right, so I had to get out my trusty friend, Seam Ripper, to take the top part off and start over. I finally got it done around 9:00 p.m.
A bag like this one costs $35 and that includes shipping. If you’d like one, email me or use my contact form and we can talk about colors
Before I started on this bag, I cut out four or five projects using those girlie fabrics, so stay tuned next week to see what I am making. I am so excited to see the finished projects myself. And, they WILL be for sale….
