    So pretty! Do you use quilting cotton for your bottoms or do you use a heavier cotton?

    I usually use a heavier weight cotton. One our my local LQS sells black fabric used to make costumes (Dutch costumes). It works quite well for the bottoms but not so much for the handles and ties. The black I used in these two totes came from Fabric.com. I really like it.

    Guess I will have to try one of those bags. Bought a pattern for another purse, have not made it. I have been working on a big quilt. I have 2 rows of the blocks made so after I get them together on the top I will put it up until after New Year.

    Be sure to share pictures!! I am always on the look out for new tote patterns. When you try your other one, share it here too.

    Very pretty! I really want to try one of these after Christmas is over. Too busy right now. I looked for the patterns on eBay and saw a Bow Tuck pattern and a Mini Bow Tuck pattern which was a bit smaller. I don't know which one I should get!
