Hopefully I’ll get this off in the mail after work, on it’s way to my friend Jacqui in England. Years ago we used to send each other decorating magazines, so they were the first thing to pop into my head when I felt the urge to send her a little gift. Then I remembered that I can sew now, a skill I didn’t have back then, and thought I’d make her a little something, too. My “little something” morphed into this roomy Tote of Many Colors made with part of a Michael Miller Cotton Couture charm pack and a yard of fabric I bought while shopping with my Mom in Tennessee. (That’s the lining and straps.)
The little tag was so much fun to make, I’m sure I’ll end up making more!
Diego watched me turn the bag right-side-out when I was done sewing, and I swear his eyes lit up when he realized that was something he could crawl inside. He followed me around until I set it down for a picture and he tried to see if it might be a good place for a nap. Yep, I’ll be packing it up right away. (I’m trying to keep the cat fur off it, Jacqui!)
He is such a quilter’s cat.
