Dear Jane tote

018

Do you remember my Dear Jane blocks from a previous post.  I had started to sew them together.  Today I have put it all together.

Made handles the easy way.

And this is how my Dear Jane tote looks like.  This is one side……

022

And this is the other side.

I like pockets with zippers in my totes, so I made one in this too.  I am so happy with how this tote turned out.  Will bring it with me to Shipshewana and keep my sewing in it.  Only 19 days left until Hanne and I starts our journey.

Saying for today:

Denne veska blei veldig søt! Likar veldig godt det stoffet du har brukt. Kor mange blokker har du att?
Flott om du lagar ein tutorial...særleg med omsyn til foret. Du er skikkeleg flink med handverket ditt!

That is just terrific. And thanks for the great idea for how to use the Dear Jane blocks I've already made (not enough to even come close to finishing a whole quilt). Yeah! You are going to have such a fun journey. Enjoy!

Signe said...

Takk for en hyggelig kveld med Vestby Quiltelag i går kveld.
Jeg er dypt imponert over alle de flotte teppene dine, og det ga masse inspirasjon.
Og nå fant jeg bloggen din som jeg kommer til å følge fremover.

Klem fra Signe
