We are off at quilt group today - these are some of the things I took with me.
The mission was given a lot of fabric that isn't the right type for quilting - upholstery fabric, canvas, lightweight stuff that's perfect for lining. I'm using some of it to make tote bags. I don't have a lot of time to sew, but I'm trying to get some made that can be given to clients at the food pantry the mission sponsors.
I love the colors of this fabric, and it's the perfect weight for a tote.
Instead of lining it, I did enclosed seams.
It was quick to put together, and I have enough fabric for one more just like it.
Before you see this next one you just might want dim your computer screen. It's a bit...loud.
I have to admit, though, as loud as it is, I really love it! The colors really pop.
I lined it and put in pockets. I think I like it so much because I used the very last bits of things - there wasn't enough of any one to make a tote, but together, they are something useful, if a bit bright.
I have a selection of samples that I'm going to piece into totes, and I have some yardage as well. More soon!
