    I've been bitten by the "purse and tote bag" bug. Seriously, I have a king size quilt that I need to sandwich and start quilting on. But I've been having so much fun with the wallets and purses and tote bags!

    Here's one of the tote bags I made. It's from The Creative Thimble, a pattern called The Professional Tote. This bag made it through a recent trip to Disney World as my purse/diaper bag/you name it, I carried it. I love her patterns and directions.

    Couldn't resist this flip flop fabric.

    I love this. I was thinking about making a bag. I love the flip flops. It is so cute and think of all the many places you can go with this bag. :)

    Really cute. I have bought all kinds of patterns and so far haven't started one. They look so intimidating to me. LOL. You know, something new to master. And if I got started I would be hooked. Thanks for sharing.

    I know what you mean by being derailed! I have made 4 bow tuck bags in the last week and a half. They are very addicting! And so fun to make.

    Very nice bag & great fabric! It seems like alot of people on here have been bitten by the "bag" bug. I love seeing all the different versions and fabrics everyone uses. We have some talented people on this board.

    Absolutely adorable tote.... and that flip-flop fabric gives this tote so much character, I'll bet you had alot of people ask you where you got that bag.
    nice work!

    Must be the time of year or something. I've been into the purses & totes too. They are so fun to make.
