Batik Scrap Tote Bag
Whoops! I started another project! What is wrong with me?? Actually, I had a great assortment of left over batik scraps. I wanted to make something with them since they were too pretty (and expensive) to just discard. I found a great tutorial on the Moda Bakeshop blog. It's the Herringbone Haul it All Tote Bag by the talented Marion McClellan of My Quilt Diet. I think the batiks look great together. I'm hoping it makes a gorgeous tote bag!
Here's how it started:
Yup, one long strip made up of 84 "half hexy" pieces! I used Jaybird's Hex n' More ruler I received at Christmas. It's a great ruler. There's so much it can do. Very versatile!
I just have to machine quilt the panel and then move onto the interior lining. It also includes a zippered pocket. This may be a bit challenging for me but I'm willing to try it. I'll post more progress as I work through the pattern.
Hope you all enjoy the Super Bowl! I don't care who wins. I'm just interested in the food! Also, heard 6 more weeks of winter was predicted by Punxsutawney Phil. That was no surprise! Heard we're getting another storm Wednesday. Can't wait for spring!!
