Be sure and check out her version of the Polka Dot Bikini quilt, see it on flickr by Clicking Here. I love it! As you can see, she is quite an over-achiever and has the top already finished. Those of you making one, I would really like to see your quilts…
I am the other winner today! I made this tote (yes, I made something other than a quilt with my limited sewing abilities) for my pre-schooler because he lost his school-issued one.
I am in love with it, the fabric is kind of like twill, so heavier than quilting cotton and lined with white fabric. And guess what? the zig-zags on the handles actually line up when the handles are placed together (I am going to claim that I did that on purpose).
So, you are asking why am I the winner? the same day my boy took this to school the first time, his teacher found his old one! guess who gets to keep this cute bag?
I used a pattern by Vanessa Christensen found in the Fall 2013 issue of Modern Patchwork magazine. I altered mine to be bigger and left off the flower appliqué. It is a great magazine, I suggest you run and get it while it’s still available!
Enjoy the rest of the week,
