Black and White Tote Bag

I made this tote bag for a swap on My Quilting Buddies. I loved it so much I had a hard time mailing it. I hope Deb in Montana loves it as much as me. If not please send it back. LOL. It was a very generously sized bag. Great for taking to pick up some groceries or going to the library to get some books. It is about the same size as the diaper bag I currently use. There is one pocket on the front and 6 pockets inside.

Fabric Postcards, a Tote Bag, and Greeting Cards

I have been slacking in posting pictures of the fabric postcards I received this month. I received a wonderful hand embroidered one from Brenda. She doubts her skills but I think it is perfect. Much better than I would do.

She also sent me a tote bag she made. The pink fabric is one of my favorites. It will get a lot of use carrying my groceries.

Rhonda in TX sent me a fabric postcard with a hurricane Ike theme. Too cute. The boys love it.

I also got this lovely fabric postcard from Vee in WA.

I also got some 2 1/2 inch fabric strips from a swap I host on Swap-Bot. Aren’t the lovely colors?

Here is a card that my Gramma Geri made and sent to me. She is so creative.

Today while I was on the phone with a friend I made this greeting card. It is blank on the inside. I haven’t decided who I will send it to or if I will sell it on ETSY. The print is fabric ironed onto the card. I added the ribbon on the side and glued a button and it looked finished to me.

I know I have my hand into too many buckets. This is what having ADD does to you. You can’t stay satisfied for more than 15 minutes with doing one thing.

Hobo Tote Bag

I decided that I needed to make myself a tote bag for church. It seems like I always leave with more than I come with. So to make it easier on myself I made this.


I was at Hancock fabric and they were having a half off sale. They had this awesome batik material sewn into patches. I think I got a half of a yard for around $1.50. I lined it with a green batik and sewed a pink floral pocket onto the green material. I just love batik material. It is just so colorful and speaks to the child in me. This bag was very easy to make. I have gotten a few compliments at church too. Not too bad for a days work.
