A New Tote Bag

I was very pleased with the tote bag I designed with a bit of inspiration from a magazine. I was making it for my mum and I was going to play with needle turn applique for the petals but my freezer paper didn't turn up (and still hasn't turned up even though I was assured it would be on its way immediately). When I finally decided to do buttonhole stitch it was so close to Mothers' Day that it became a gift for that day. Luckily the visiting daughter couldn't visit til yesterday so I just got it finished in time. She made me a lovely chocolate cake for a present. My mum loved the bag.

Front. The rick rack was a gift from Michelle
and the petals were the charm squares from Suz

Back. Again the petals were the charm squares from Suz

Happy Appliquing,
