This week I've been working on a couple of kids' little totes/book bags for gifts. For the little girl I'm using this purple polka dot (looks more purple in real life) with the floral for the lining. On the outside I'm going to use the pom pom fringe.

This is the bag I'm making for the little boy. It's that cowboy fabric I had bought and is lined with red bandana-look fabric.

This morning I made a trip to my local quilt shop to check out their big July sale. All fabrics were 30% off. It was hard to narrow down my choices, but I did. This is what I came home with.

On the left some Denyse Schmidt and on the right some florals and coordinating prints. I can't wait to get started on some more bags for my shop.


  1. What IS it about a shot of fabrics that's just so satisfying??? Can't wait to see the bags.

    Love your note from Dawn. Definitely a piece of art. :)

  2. ooooo....such yummy fabrics!...

  3. so pretty...I bought the fabric to sew a little bunny rabbit last night at Jo'anns Fabric store. She will be a pink girl bunny =) I'll be back to see what you've made.

  4. I love the cowboy tote bag!!! Be sure to post the girl's bag, too; and thanks for posting the fabrics you bought at the sale. They are beautifu.
