A New Project - and A New Goal

The new project is another of the totes similar to the one I made last week.

I like this one better because I made a few changes to it. I added some stabilizer. The other one is okay with just the batting but I wanted something a little firmer. I also added a pocket to the inside of this one and made the bow a bit bigger. And I made this one with some gorgeous Kona Bay fabric I've had for a couple of years. Kona Bay is my absolute favorite fabric - I'd use it for everything if I could afford it!

The new goal will be used for this month's Charming Girls' Quilt Club. I'm having trouble getting the link for this in the body of the post so if you click on the title of the post or the link on my side bar you can go to the Charming Girls' Quilt Club and see all the details and how you can join and participate too.

The goal is to make another one of these bags for my daughter using this fabric:

I've also been working on some things I can't show. Swap blocks for a snowman swap and I'm working on some Christmas presents too. Business at work has really dropped off and so I'm not working as much so I'm trying to be productive here with my time.

Until next time, hugs and stitches. Jody

That is going to be a fun bag for your daughter. I love the 'secret' sewing too, but wish we could see it. Have fun!

Okay CJ, I posted pictures of the secret sewing. The girls have received them so I won't spoil anyone's surprise.
