    Tote and Accessories Bag

    This tote started off as an entirely different pattern, but the paper piecing didn't go as planned, so I ended up with this design. Because there are left and rights of the blades, they won't spin in the same direction, but if anyone is looking that close they should make me an offer!

    I found a really good video on how to install a zip pocket inside and magnetic snaps in a tote...even I could do it.... The zipper pocket is at about 18 minutes and the magnetic clasp at about 25 minutes. I'll put the link at the bottom.

    I also made this little zippered accessories bag out of pleather and quilted it on my Tiara. That machine will quilt anything!

    Very nice! That’s a great way to use up blocks. Your bags look so professional.

    I like projects that morph from plan A to plan B (or C or D) into a happy new creation. Your spinning wheel design and colors pack a lot of punch!

    You did fantastic is saving those blocks that were planned for something else. The accent fabric at the top of the tote is perfect and your accessories bag turned out so professionally top notch! Love how your quilting shows up so good on it with the colored thread.

    Oooh, I like that purse. Black and white with brights has always been one of my favorite combinations.

    I love them both! How scary was it to start quilting on the pleather knowing that any stitch ripping would leave holes?

    Lovely tote bag and accessory bag! They are so professional looking. I like your fabric color choices as well.

    Thank you for including the video tutorial. The young lady does a great job explaining the steps.

    Quiltingshorttimer...it wasn't so bad on this project because it was only playing around and it was an easy, all-over feather....Now, I'm thinking of doing a wearable art piece for a show, so ask me then!

    If anyone wants the patterns for the bag or the accessory bag, they were free so I could link them.
