    I've had this material for ages & never knew what to do with it. It came to me one day that I needed to make a tote for Paducah because I spend so much money there! So I made this one. I'm going to make a wallet to match it but that's in time...........Just glad I got this finished. Started on it about 12:30 to day & finished it later this evening. Has pockets on the outside & pockets on the inside. There are some things I'd change but for now it's good nuff!

    That is too funny! Great bag, thanks for sharing it. Now, do you have your extra comfortable walking shoes ready?

    Does it represent all the $$$$$ you will be spending! Have a great time. I have never gone to Paducah, maybe someday. Your bag is really cute!

    That's a great bag. I'm sure you will get lots of comments in Paducah about it.

    Yes it sure does! The first 2 days there is all spend, spend, spend. Then it kinda slows down!

    I have made several wallets out of this fabric, will post later this morning. Sold a couple, too. I get compliments on it all the time. The wallet lining is coins. Your bag looks great. Have fun in Paducah and don't forget to go to the big sale that Hancock's of Paducah has every year at the same time!

    Paduach is the big quilt show in April, held in Paducah KY. They have one every years & I've been lucky enough to go to them for the last 15 yrs. I love going because there are so many vendors (that's where all the $$$$ goes besides the room & food) & the quilts are just unbelievable. It started out to be a girls fishing trip for us & has slowly died down & I'm the last one who still goes every year. I get lots of promises but they all usually cancel for one reason or another. It's a really fun filled week/weekend

    I'll have to look for some coin fabric. That would look good on the inside. I can't wait to see yours because I've got a wallet in the making, just haven't gotten to the final stage of sewing it together. I will be looking for your post

    This has caused some great laughter.
    Your tote is wonderful. It may be
    all the money that you'll have left
    after that great show.
