Hey, fellow craftstermaniacs!!
I'm loving this board and all the great and original work you guys do.
Here are some pictures (hopefully,if all goes well) of a couple of totes I've made recently.
I would appreciate your opinions. My true passion is crazy quilting, but these bags are quick to put together, and fun to do.

The bags they are on are pre-made - supermarket recycleable calico bags.
The patches are hand sewn and hand stitched on to 'iron on' vylene (sp??), ironed on to the bag then stitched down around the edges.

I used a verigated thread for the stitching on the green bag. It needed the colour.

 This is a gift for a friend

awaiting your verdicts.......

uh huh  preg_replace('/(.{19})/', '$1 ', 'worthyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy')    Did you make up the spiral pattern? I would love to try that spiral pattern.  Funny, sorta,  I just bought some totes yesterday at a garage sale, with logos on them,  and planned to cover the  logos up somehow.

Holy Cow!  Those bags are lovely.

It seemed like a good idea at the time. . .
