Bags for Me

I did make a few bags for myself.  I had to try out the Ruched Happy Bag pattern before I made one to give away.  I also made a small tote.

The bag pattern is from During Quiet Time.  It is called the Ruched Happy Bag.  I made it out of some texty fabrics.  You can see the Madrona Road on the front and the back along with a cute quilty newspaper print.

The tote was made from a tutorial on YouTube from the Missouri Star Quilt Co.  It uses twelve charm squares.  I had some Hello Luscious charm squares from QuiltCon.  I bought some of the solid coral and used a blue solid that I had hanging around.  It was fun and easy.  I did have one of my handles twisted and it was a challenge getting it fixed.  It turned out cute.  A nice shopping bag to have in the car.  Austin is a no plastic bag kind of town so you have to bring something to hold your items when you make purchases.
