Default 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 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.
