Do you do Pinterest? I know some people are just hooked! I'd say I'm a moderate user...weeks will go by when I don't look at it, then something will spark my interest, so I'll go surfing on the page a little. I never fail to find something I *love* and just have to make or bake. :) It really is a great place to find recipes, decorating ideas, and inspiration!
I needed a quickie gift idea and came across this simple tote/purse that someone had "pinned." The great thing is that it linked back to the free pattern on All People Quilt! Here is the Pattern.
It's a bit smaller than I was thinking, but it's still a decent size for a project bag, book bag, or lunch bag...
The direction say it measures 8" x 10". It went together really quick and easy...probably 2 hours tops, and that included cutting the fabrics. I wish the pictures were better, it's cloudy today and my house seems dark. :/
