    I've made a lot of tote bags for others & my friend Sherrie told me I better make one for myself. It has been on the back burner for awhile. My sewing room has to stay set up as a guest room until thru the weekend so I couldn't quilt my GD's WIP & decided to take up space in my old sewing room (the dining room) to make my tote bag. The pockets are paperpieced patterns & I finally used some of my blues & yellows.

    Ooh Pam

    I absolutely love your tote, looking at it, it's Foundaatione Pieced isn't it?
    Blue & Yellow are one of my favourite colour combinations.
    Oops before I forget where did you obtain the pattern from & how big is the finished tote. Would love to give this one a bash :lol:

    Many Thanks Tisha

    Wow! Love the blue and yellow, all the pockets, the teapots and teacups are precious, and all so neatly done. It's a 10!!!!

    Thanks! The pocket designs are foundation pieced. You can choose any design or quilt block etc for the pocket. I've made some with frogs & some with trees & one with an embroidered crab...etc. The bag front and back are 16" x 20 & 1/2" & the pockets are 10" x 10". The bag bottom is 7" x 15 & 1/2". I took a class at my friend Sherrie's house & I'll have to get back to you about the pattern. It was a free class among friends & I think Becky designed the bag. I'll check. :D
