Sewing Tote Bag

The other day, I read a post on Zippy Quilts. Mary posted a bag she made using a Kraft-Tex base. She provided the bag tutorial link from Bijou Lovely. I liked the bag pattern, and the bird fabric Mary used was beautiful. I also liked the Alexander Henry fabric, Sewing Woes. The fabric reminded me of the romance comics that my older sister used to read…and hide from me.
I decided to make the bag a bit larger than the pattern, mainly because I wanted to showcase more of the fabric. This size will also come in handy for carrying my stuff whenever I attend craft days with my friends. I added pockets to the inside lining.
I wanted the bag to stand on its own, so I used Bosal one-sided fusible foam. I have enough scraps to make other small projects.

Learning Something New

 

Thanks to Mary J. Puckett from Zippy Quilts, I learned about fabric postcards.
The fabric postcards she posted are so pretty.
I decided to research some more information about fabric postcards DIY.
This morning, I made a patriotic fabric postcard.
It is very basic, but I wanted to keep it simple on my first attempt.
I happened to have the necessary supplies and fabric remnants.
It was so much fun…I plan to make more!
Thank you, Mary!
