Tote Bag Frenzy.

After years of quilting, I only just discovered how to make tote bags. Now, a tote bag is a walk in the park compared to a Queen-size quilt, but I previously felt daunted by sewing anything other than a flat, blanket-like object. Sure, tote bags are "flat", but they have to be made to hold 3-dimensional objects, and they must have handles, and liners, etc... So, I never made one ... until now. And NOW, I can't stop!

Also, I have just discovered embroidery (can you believe it took me this long?). So, a few of my bags have trendy little embroidery patches on them. And I love it. I want to keep them all ... but many will wind up for sale or trade.

Here are a few:
(please excuse the terrible photography, I was in a rush to get these on here. I will take better photos for Etsy).

Thanks for looking!
