The bag measures about 15" x 16", plenty deep to hold my magazines and project boxes when I go off on a trip.
I added lots of white background to make things fit and did some loopy machine quilting.
I lined the bag with fabric I bought a few years ago when I was on a quilting cruise. Really, where else would I use this fabric? What was I thinking?
When I finished the tote, I made a few zippered pouches. I had purchased some sewing theme fabric awhile back and combined it with some great black and white fabric Karen of KaHolly had gifted me called Timeless Treasures Quilting News.
It was a cinch to make some HST's, sew the rows together, and quilt the fabric.
Of course I had more fabric left, so in keeping with a "sewing for me" theme, I decided to make a cover for my sewing machine. I made more HSTs, did some more quilting, and added a binding.
The shape of the cover kind of resembles a loaf of bread, but it works. The funny thing is, my machine is hardly ever at rest so I probably don't really need a dust cover, but it was a fun project to make and the fabrics make me smile!
