Friday Night Sew-in

Late this afternoon, I decided to give myself a break and joined Heidi's Friday Night Sew-in.

Heidi has created a new canvas bag pattern and suggested it as a possible project. I pulled out an unfinished bag project of my own. After a couple of really relaxing and fun hours, I had finished this.


Summer Market Tote

My bag is 12 inches high, 8 inches wide and 8 inches deep. I really like how nicely it sits on its own.  It's constructed from 6 inch quilt blocks and fabric squares.   There's a tutorial in the works–if you'd like to make one like it yourself, stay tuned.

Unless the promised storms (with flood warnings) are in full force, I'll be taking it for a test drive at the Dallas Farmer's Market tomorrow morning  . . . and I'll take a better photo, too ;-)

It's true what you say about the design process changing - so far, it's changed quite radically as I lost the tic-tac-toe paper plan, and cut and sewed the sashing at 3inches without checking my blog post pic which shows 2 inches, cos I'm lazier than you sigh! So I'm wondering if I'll have space for a border at all now. double sigh!! I'm just going to play it by ear I think...
