sweet little addition to The Bag
I am now referring to my new tote as 'The Bag'. My kids know not to touch it or use it. The Accountant remembers to say nice things about it on a daily basis. And it is wrapped in tissue and placed in a locked box over night for safety. Ha ha. I kid. Sorta.
If you read yesterday's post you already know how proud I am of myself for making The Bag. From scratch. With my sewing machine. And no hot glue gun. 6 hours.
I am on such a roll that I kept my machine out and used some scraps and the Flower Folds Die, Scallop circles #2 Die, and Big Shot to make a quilted flower to attache to The Bag.
The quilted flowers are layered with a couple pieces of fabric and some really nice and soft 100% cotton batting from a quilt shop here in town. I cut both layers and the batting at the same time and then stitched (don't look too close) with my mini Janome.
