I made 5 of these giant totes for my crafty friends for our Birthday celebration. I thought they would be great to take along on our shop hop adventures!

Four of them say, " Who you calling a fat quarter?". I printed the saying out onto Kona cotton in cream on my regular printer and heat set the image. I then used a decorative stitch on my machine to add the patch.

I have one crafty pal that doesn't sew much, but is an amazing cross stitcher so I made her bag just a bit different. It says "cross stitchers are X-rated".

I managed to fit 2 couch pillows in the bags to photograph them! I think they should hold a ton of fabric when we go shopping!

LOL those bags are great, and the sayings are a hoot - very appropriate!  Your crafty friends are lucky!

Thank you - you've given me an idea of making matching totes for my little group of Ladies Night Out ladies - we're going out tonight for thrift storing/dinner/movie - it would be really fun if we had matching bags - it would be the perfect Christmas gift!

What a great gift idea! I'll have to learn more about heat setting - much simpler than embroidery!
