    Kitty cat tote bag

    I am going to a Heritage Festival in a nearby town tomorrow, taking my baby quilts to set up a craft booth. Wished I had something other than just my quilts to take. I was rummaging through my "stuff",ha, and came across this cute printed panel. Sooo, yesterday afternoon I threw together a quick quilted tote bag. I machine quilted around the kitties and geometric designs. I just happened to have a wee bit of pre-quilted natural colored fabric, so used that for sides and bottom. Would have looked better with a darker print, but used what I had. I liked it, if it doesn't sell, I will keep this one.
    I also made a whole stack of hot pads for the table, with Heat and Bond lining, so I have some variety for folks to choose from.

    I just don't understand how you gifted people can "just grab" a piece of fabric and make a beautiful article. I have to ponder for awhile, find the fabric to match, and then by the time I get it cut out my day is shot....lol

    Oh......I'd keep it for myself!! Would love to see a bigger pic for detail. Was the kitty on other fabric? When you say you "threw together a quick quilted tote bag", I had to chuckle......it would take me a month to do one!! I'd never be able to part with it tho.

    Good plan. The bag is really cute and having more than one kind of item to sell is sometimes very halpful to get customers

    You will sell that kitty tote for sure. It will probably be the first thing to sell. It is very nice. You did a very good job on it. It is so darn cute!!!!

    What a wonderful way to use those panels that are always lurking in the background and shouting to be used.
