Two items on my Year Of Projects list are to make a new work tote and complete my stitch sampler wrap.
This week I worked on both.
First, my tote bag.
A few weeks ago I saw a YouTube video by Midnight Quilt Show about using stash fabric to create a tote.
Turns out, the pattern is free on Craftsy.com!
It is the Tiki Tote.
I cut them all into 2.5″ strips and then into 2.5″x5″ strips.
I have sewn four of the eight outer panels and, surprisingly, they seem to work together!
I do not plan on using strips for the inside, instead using one piece of fabric for the liner.
I also have some cream canvas that I’ll be able to use for the straps (hopefully there is enough).
I also managed to complete a few more rows of my stitch sampler wrap (free pattern on Ravelry).
I plan on having this done and blocked by mid August.
That’s it for this week!
