Apparently there is no such thing as starting "too early" when making gifts intended for Christmas...I swear I started working on things MONTHS ago...and here we are nearly a week and a half before Christmas, and I'm sewing like a mad woman to get things finished!
Just a few cute little totes I've whipped up...these are for a co-worker of my husbands who asked if I would make a few embroidered tote bags so she could give them to her nieces for Christmas. Of course I said yes, and here they are!
She requested blues and greens for Maggie's bag, and being as those colors seem to make up a large portion of my fabric stash, I had lots to pick from.
The second bag for Caitlin, she requested have bright fun colors and animal prints. I managed to find a jelly roll I must have purchased eons ago that had some zebra and giraffe prints and mixed in some bright green and blue with it.
These bags measure appx 12" tall x 10" wide and 4" deep. In making these, I basically followed Rachel from psiquilt's tutorial for her friendship bags, and altered the dimensions to what I wanted and added some personalized embroidery. Super easy just a few hours to complete both bags!
I finshed these bags off with two of my personalized "handmade" labels, and they are ready be sent off to their new owners!
