This was my project last weekend. It is Anita Goodesign's "Tote-ally Tote-able" Tote. I just love the way this project turned out. Don't you love those leather handles with the leather flowers and buttons. I purchased the handles at the Arizona Quilt Guild Show in March. I knew I'd find a place to use them and they were perfect for this project.
Here is a close up of the fabrics and the embroidery design on each block. The entire tote is made in the hoop of the embroidery machine. The fabric is from Granny's Attic. I purchased it when Karen had her shop in Campbellsville, Kentucky but now she has an online shop. The ribbon was also purchased from Granny's. The instructions don't call for a lining in the tote but I wanted a lining and pockets. So I designed and constructed a lining with pockets. Now it's perfect. Now I working on an embroidered pillow top in bright colors.
