Last week I made a tote bag from a pattern in Yoko Saito's book, and blogged about it , here
I liked the shape of it, but wanted to make it larger, so I sized it up a bit,
This shows both bags,
This time I used an orphan quilt block appliqued on the front panel. It is an antique block that I bought in a whole stack of blocks a couple of years ago.
I like the bag, but I might make one even a bit larger. This one used the full 42" width of the fabric for the black patterned piece in the picture above, so I guess I'll need to piece it for a bigger one.
