it’s done! i finally finished the tote bag for my car quilt. i incorporated one last block (thanks, Liz!) into the front of the bag for a pocket. I wanted to make it easy to get access to the contents of the bag, but also not have it gapping open all the time, so one of the handles has a button:
which, when unbuttoned, allows the bag to open like this:
i’ll let you know how it works in the long run. i may switch to a buttonhole instead of an elastic loop… or i might just leave it. i do love the way it turned out!
here’s a sneak peek at my next quilting project. any guesses as to the quilt pattern i’m using? (hint: it’s an actual pattern, not just improvised!)
