Here's the one I'm not loving...
I still love that fabric, dog gone it!
Anyway, I wanted to try the Charm Tote pattern I got at Long Beach last year. At Easter, one of my prizes during the Easter Egg hunt at the Orange Quilt Bee was a charm pack! I got home with the one I picked out and raced upstairs to peek at my stash. Sure enough, I had a matching charm pack from another giveaway, from the same line. That meant I had enough to make the Charm Tote!
And for free!
It took me two evenings, because I kept getting sidetracked with NCIS episodes, but, I have a nice big bag that I really like!
It holds EVERYTHING, and has convenient pockets inside, etc. I even had enough charms to piece the handles out of charms.
Whoo hoo! I'm eyeing a few other charm packs and getting ideas! This one is more fall colors, I think. I would love to cut some red/white/blue charms and make one for summer. And I think I can score those right out of my stash. Yay for another frugal purse!
After finishing it, I moved on to a few more Farmer's Wife blocks.
P.S. Look what lives at my Home Depot now!
