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.
