Last night I took part in my 3rd Friday Night Sew In and as usual it was so much fun! My buddies Amy and Regena were also playing along and we chatted online in between sewing our projects. A few weeks back I carried Evie's quilt over to my daughter's house to do some hand quilting and I really wished I had a large tote to carry it in safely. So I thought I'd keep my eyes open for some fabric that would work.
Look what I found on etsy!!!! It's called "Sew Now Sew Wow" by Alexander Henry and they had it in upholstery canvas weight! I was immediately smitten! Every time I look at it I have to smile! The seller shipped it so fast that it arrived yesterday morning so I was able to use it for the FNSI :)
Oh yeah....I'm a happy girl :)
Of course I lined the bag in red and white polka dots!
I'm going to make a small zipper bag to carry my perle thread, scissors and thimble in but I'm still on the fence as to what pattern to use for that.
For the tote I used my trusty Simplicity 9658 view C pattern and it fits the baby sized quilt and all my perle cotton bubbles and scissor with room to spare!
I fussy cut the pocket to include that adorable black sewing machine with the red heart detail :)
I've been told by my friends that I should not leave this bag unattended as it might suddenly go missing......:)
Maybe I'll sew a LoJack into one of the seams,
just for good measure!
