Simple Tote

I made this tote bag for my MIL for Christmas. When I started on this post, I realized, I made her one in 2014. Oh joy! You can't have too many totes can you? I think not. But I do wish the time frame had been a bit longer. Oh well.

This is the same tote bag from "Home Stuff" by Linda Lum DeBono.  I made this one and this one. As you can see, I love this pattern.

I chose not to quilt this one and instead used a heavy stabilizer on the focus fabric to keep it standing up.  The fabrics are quilting cottons that I found at Quarterdeck Quilts in Springfield.

The inside is so roomy.

My Christmas sewing is almost complete.  I have two shirts left to do for my son, and then I can work on my bedroom window treatments that have been on hold for a year.  I'll be glad to get those completed.

Thanks for stopping by.  And Happy Wednesday!
