Closing out 2013

I actually bought a class on line from Craftsy for this tote bag.  I thought it was kinda cute and wanted to try the online class instruction.  It worked pretty well.  There is an instructor who demos all the steps of the project and you can re-watch it as many times as you want to watch it.  The pattern is downloadable .pdf.  Anyway - this one is called Tinker's Tote.  I've made three so far.  Here they are....
 I did this one using selvages - I have bags of them - saved to make something... The bright blue is cross grain ribbon to cover up the raw edges where I couldn't get them covered.  The tote has a magnetic snap to close the flap at the front (above).  Back is below.  I'm not sure if I'll keep this one or give it away.

 This one is using up black and white scraps.  I'll probably keep this one because I forgot to put a pocket in it.

I had some left over blocks from Brenda's place mats so I used them and some of the same scraps to make this one.  It's all wrapped up for my sister Chris for Christmas.  I hope she likes it - she likes the southwestern colours and motifs so I think this one is a good bet for her.

I still want to make one more for my sister Carol.  We won't see them until after Christmas, so I still have time.

I wish you and your special people a wonderful Christmas and a healthy and happy 2014.
