    Look at the adorable tote Terri sent me! It's made of a green fabric with chihuahuas on it! I just love it!

    It has pockets on the inside and a very heavy duty snap fastener.
    This is such a cool pressie!!

    Thanks, Terri!!

    Love,
    MJ

    Oh, how cool!! Terri is pretty nice, isn't she?? :lol:

    Thats a perfect gift for you and your pups. Looks like you could even "tote" them around in it...(I know ...groan, but I couldn't resist :oops: :roll: )

    I know, but my chihuahuas are just too fat!
    The "little" one is 16 pounds and the "big" one is 14!
    Just way too big for me to be TOTE-ING around!

    I'm glad you all like it.
    Little story as to how I came around to making/send it to her.
    She kept saying she would buy a tote for herself if I could find chihuahua fabric. Well, I searched and searched the internet for it and could not find ANYTHING I liked. So, I just set that little project aside until it popped up again.
    While shopping around in HI, I went to my FAVORITE fabric store and looking thru the fabric, there was the chihuahua. I pulled the bolt out and just started laughing at it. It was just too cute. My oldest was with me and she was just groaning at me. lol I told her I HAD to buy just enough of that fabric to make a tote as a surprise. I told her about Purplemem and her pups. When we got back to her house, I showed her the pictures and she said they looked more like little sausages. lol
    When I finally got home, the first thing I did was make the tote. Had to get it done and mailed. It was hard to keep the secret because I wanted so bad to show that fabric, but had to hold it back when taking pics of what I bought.
    I'm just so glad you like it Purplemem. I could hear the happiness in your voice when you called me to say Thank You. I like to make people happy and to see them smile.

    As to who makes the fabric? Give me a little bit of time...I think I still have a small piece that has the name on it. It's somewhere in my room, but I can't find it at the moment. I'll post it as soon as I can find it.

    Ok, I knew I'd find the one piece I had left. Just had to stop and think of WHERE I would put it and of course, it's right where I thought it'd be. lol

    Fabric name/manufacturer:

    Robert Kaufman
    "Diva Delights"
    Screen Print D# 6100

    I did a search on Google for it, but couldn't find it :(

    If anyone is wanting the fabric, PM me.
    I can call my daughter and have her run to the shop I bought it at and she can see if they still have it.

    Terri,
    I have had SO MANY compliments on my tote. I use it to carry my latest quilting project, which, of course, has to go with me everywhere. The pockets are perfect for my scissors and threads, needles, etc.

    The big pocket I use for my wallet and phone. I really really really want to thank you again for this fantastic surprise pressie! :D :D :D
