Sometimes you just need to make yourself a gift. So how about a tote?
Maudie from #QuiltChat shared this really great bag she made. She found it while blogsurfing, and low and behold, the blog is owned by Chatter-friend from years past!
Andrea's blog is full of wonderful things. She is one of those fantastic over-achiever types that seems to piece a new top every time I look her up. (She really has some fun projects, so I hope you take some time to dig around a bit.)
Here are the directions that Andrea has posted for us:
Bucket Bag Tutorial, Part 1
Bucket Bag Tutorial, Part 2
Bucket Bag Tutorial, Part 3
Breaking the How-To up into bite sized pieces is a nice touch. Thanks Andrea!
And Thank you to Maudie for showing us this could be done.
This is another project for Thrifty Gift Maker hour, a live online chat held at #QuiltChat- all are welcome to join in the fun! I host Gift Maker Chat on Sundays @ 7 pm & Mondays @ 10 am Eastern US Time, but there are usually folks in around the clock if you want to chat at other times.
