My Dad asked me for a tote bag recently. He has started taking hot yoga and wanted something that a towel and yoga mat would fit in. (It is his birthday next weekend so I figured it was kind of perfect timing.) I decided that I could use my Amy Butler bag book again!
I didn’t use interfacing, sshhhhh don’t tell Amy that I know she loves her interfacing. I was using a heavy denim plus I just didn’t have enough. I can see that if you want the tote to have more structure you would want to use interfacing but I think that my Dad will be happy with it either way. After I finished sewing this bag my hands were blue from the denim! So this tote had a good wash after its beauty shots. I figured my Dad didn’t want to turn blue as he was using it!
Next up I finished up this slab block. It is not perfect but I have never ever done a block like this before. Cheryl has organized a quilt block for us to make for the flood victims in Southern Alberta. There was major destruction and people lost so much. I had a sister in law and niece evacuated from their place. Luckily for them nothing got damaged but some weren’t so lucky. If you have a moment and can make a 15.5” slab block that would be awesome! If every one just made one slab more quilts will be able to be made! We quilters know that there is nothing better than snuggling under a quilt!
