    This is my second in a series of tote bags that I'm working on. This one came together a lot faster than the first one I made. I have lots more in my head and lots more FQs to mix and match. I've posted a picture of the inside to show the inner pockets and base. I'm also working on a Downy quilt (almost finished), a log cabin quilt (trying to decide on borders) and a few smaller projects. I want to get all of these done before I start on my California King quilt. In the meantime I'm still job hunting but this is a great diversion! Thanks for looking and if you have any suggestions, critiques or comments please jump in!

    So cute! I love paisley and think it's vastly underused.

    Thanks for looking! I love paisley and bought this fabric at Hancock Fabrics. It is marked MBT but I don't know the name of the collection. The bottom green with the tiny paisley is also from Hancock. It is from the Fabri-Quilt Days of Wine and Roses collection. The lime green lining is from their FQ rack and has no selvedge so I don't know the manufacturer. The dark pink strip and inner pocket is made from a fabric I purchased at Wal-Mart.

    That's a great tote! What pattern did you use. I saw one similar to this one (but not as nice inside) the other day that sold for $14.99. I sure like this one.

    Thanks very much! I didn't use a pattern, just made it up using FQs. If you check my other post for Springtime Tote Bag there's a basic walkthrough there on how I did it. I will be selling these at a day spa where my DD works for about $50-$60 and also have some orders from a few of my friends and relatives. Considering the time it takes to make them and the cost of the material and notions I think this is a very fair price for a one-of-a kind bag and the clientele there are used to paying much more for accessories. Please feel free to PM me if you don't understand my explanation on the other post.

    Thanx for the other link too. I hadn't seen it, and I'm really interested in making one like this for a special gift.

    Although I see quite a few paisleys in LQS, I don't see many of them used in quilting. The bag is so pretty and it's nice to see that you've incorporated them.
