Just in time

Finished just in time for the beach!  This is a second tote bag that followed the tutorial from  A few weeks back I was online shopping perusingYes, I wasn't intentionally looking at to buy fabric, but I just couldnt help when these half yard bundles caught my eye...

This set of fabrics is from various designers, I ordered a half yard bundle, and received all these yummy bright fabrics.  How terrible, I forget what half of them are, but I used some of the Heather Baily Pop Garden fabric I received, some of the blue/aqua dots for the lining and some Kona Chocolate for the bottom of the bag. 
I also ordered a half yard bundle of Anna Maria Horner's Good Folks line of fabrics.  I am just dying to dig into these!  12 different half yards...I'm still deciding on what project I will cut into these for...perhaps my mother-in-laws quilt for Christmas...we shall see.

This bag just screams "take me to the beach", I had initial plans to use it as a laptop bag carrier, but I think it will have dual purposes! 

Well, my vacation has officially begun, and we will be beach-bound as of Sunday!  See everyone in a week or so!



  1. That's a beautiful bag........I am crazy about all things lime and turquoise !

    What fun that you could treat yourself to this fabric. I need to do a lot more getting rid of old stuff before I can bring it much new. But I'm working on it........AND PERUSING TOO !

  2. Adorable bag! Happy to have found you on Sew & Tell. ;o)
