Shabby Chic

Do you remember a couple of weeks ago when I won a give-away from the The Quilted Castle blog? (Oh, happy day!) Well, today I sat down and whipped up the little Moda bag from one of the Honey-Buns I was awarded. It takes some time to sew the fabric strips together in this darling mini-tote, but the Moda instructions are a breeze and I think it turned out adorable. I'm calling her "Shabby Chic"! This mini-tote is 9"x7"x3". It's the perfect size for a little cosmetic bag or a jewelry tote for traveling. I might even try my hand at selling these little totes in the future.

This one is going to go to a special someone for Valentine's Day. Thank you again, Quilted Castle, for giving me this darling pattern and fabric. Your generosity is appreciated!

Love what you did with the Moda. I have a soft spot for Moda fabric and have rarely seen a quilt using Moda fabric that I didn't love.

My question is, do you actually use the totes and bags you make or is it mainly your love of design/process (and you're so good at it)? Just wondering . . .

Oh, please DO start selling these small bags. I would most certainly get one.

I'm loving the bag I just bought from you, buy the way. It is just beautiful and puts such a huge smile on my face! Thank you. Thank you.

This turned out SOOO sweet! You are very talented!! I have to say that yours looks even better than the ones we saw at Quilt Market. Each of the Moda reps (even the men!) had one that they had made with the same little box of fabric that you won. It was interesting to see how each rep had personalized theirs using different buttons and trims. Anyway, yours is my favorite and I am glad that you won our little freebie!!
