Finally finished the patchwork tote that I started a few weeks ago. It was all inspired by this post and tutorial by Sherri of Thread Riding Hood. I love how it turned out. I love that it actually turned out lol. I almost lost hope. Not really a patchwork or quilter, I ran into a few challenges along the way. I suppose if I would have followed the directions that would have helped. But no, always have to be a little different and make things much larger, mine finished at 20" wide by 16" tall and is 6" deep at the bottom! I probably shouldn't have been watching Ancient Aliens while I was attempting this either. I tend to get sucked into that, being a mystic junkie and all. Back to the bag. The strips of fabric do not match up exactly on the sides, hence no side view pic. Somehow I cut one or two strips a tad too wide. And the grommet holes. Don't even want to talk about it. My tote is extra sturdy because I used Annies soft and stable along with interfacing along with a canvas liner. I know, a little over kill, but hey, sew and learn. So, it was super thick and I had much cutting out of layers and ended up buying curtain ring things to cover the holes. All in all, I really love how it turned out and can't wait to fill it up on our next trip. What do you think?
