Quilted Tote Bag

Today I finished my quilted tote bag, which I think all or almost all Crackpots saw during All Together Week. I had lots of the flowered fabric, which I love, left over from making the applique table runner, so I decided to use it to make this bag. It’s from the book Sew and Go Totes by Kristine Poor. The author is an engineer, so the instructions are very clear. This is the most complicated bag I’ve attempted (though it’s still pretty simple) to date, and it turned out great! And I only had to buy some solid black fabric for the lining and a little stiff Pellon craft interfacing that goes in the handles. The stars form 3 separate pockets on the front and 3 on the back. Now I only have a small amount of the flowered fabric left, so I’ll have to get very creative with how I use that…
