tote bag finish from IG tutorial

 Another finish!!  Yesterday I finished this tote bag that I started several months ago..
 It is from an instagram tutorial by daisycottagequilting and to find it on IG use #bagtutorial
 Sharon uses lots of photos and descriptions to make this.  She said to use fusible interfacing for the lining and that is what I used.  Go check out her tutorial.
 Here is a photo of the right sides together getting ready to sew them together.  I need lots of photos and directions when I am doing a new project so that is why I am including this photo.
Anyone that wants to make one of these I would just do it.  There is a lot of help on the internet and lots of different ways to make a tote!
Our Tuesday small quilt group is working on self-mitered log cabin blocks.  Here is my first one and the pattern is on vellum...thanks to Jan Krentz.  She did a wonderful demo for us on Tuesday night.  I have a lot of 2" strips cut out of lights and darks and I need to find mediums.  This is tricky for me to get them in order.  But this is a very fun block to do!!

Smiles and hugs....Caryl
