We are finally going to do it this year, we are going to full out do homemade Christmas gifts. God blessed me with this knack of inspiring others with my enthusiasm to do stuff. I get jazzed about sewing, quilting and knitting and I practically burst telling my sisters and mom about my latest project. This year I decided to make my mom and sisters a tote bag and fill it with more homemade goodies. My plan is to make 6 bags (one for me too), 6 lap quilts, 6 mini aprons for your counter dish soap container, lavender sachets for the delicates drawers and other neat things that I can stuff in that tote. I already purchased the material for 3 of the six bags and will post a picture tonight of the combinations I have chosen. I am going to have to modify the pattern to include a couple of inside pockets but that should be pretty easy. Here are the fabric selections I have made so far.
My youngest sister picked out this combination, not exactly my favorite but she liked it and I will enjoy making it for her.
I am making these totes based on a tutorial for a market tote I saw on another blog Bijou Lovely Designs. Since these are gifts and I have no intention of selling them or producing them for profit I think I can linky her blog on here.
What do you think of the fabrics, have you made totes or these totes specifically? How did yours turn out. I would love to see pics.
Have a wonderful day.
