    Cat tote bag

    I am almost finished with a quilt with these fabrics but took a break and made this tote with left overs. I am calling it saggy baggy. i forgot to add any decor bond on the front that has the pockets inside on it of course. it stays up well enough but how did i forget? oh well. Back to the quilt.

    there are three pockets inside if you can tell.

    Such a cute tote bag. I like the 6o's style mod kitties in the print.

    I look forward to seeing your finished quilt with these cute fabrics! Your tote bag looks marvelous! Did you use decor bond on the main bag body (cat fabric section)? I love the pockets you put inside. Nice work!

    yes i put Decor bond 809 in the light print lining but absolutely forgot it on the pocket side. i had so much trouble making the pockets out of scraps that i forgot to add it. it stands up but does sag a tiny bit. With things in it, it should work well enough. I hope to finish her quilt soon. it's almost done. encountered a problem on it so went onto the tote bag, just to get something finished!

    That's so cute and a great use of the 'scraps'. I always say that quilters don't have trash, we just have pieces that haven't found a home yet! When I make totes for my girls, I don't put heavy interfacing in them. They like to roll them up, throw them in other purses, and need to be very washable. But I do make a removable bottom piece - something very stiff covered on fabric. This allows it to keep a shape, but can be removed for washing or for rolling.

    That is adorable. Really like the cat paw fabrics that you made the handle with.

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.
