Another Shopping Tote

This is Maggie when she was seven weeks old.

Cutest Jack Russell ever!

So I made a shopping bag for her!

I basically used the pattern I posted a few weeks ago, added the pocket, a border, and the applique.  I used off-white denim for the main fabric and two prints from Moda for the lining and borders that I purchased from our local quilt shop, Tomorrow’s Treasures. (I love the Moda fabric prints and am always thinking of ways to use them.)  I made the applique from felt, Heat N Bond Lite, and one of the Moda prints.  Then I satin stitched around the Moda fabric, embroidered eyes and the detail on the feet and top stitched around the felt pieces.

I’ve only appliqued a few things so will not even try to explain how to do it–my shopping tote instructions are confusing enough and I’ve sewn for decades!  Just search for applique out in the blog world and there are many excellent tutorials.

Another fun project completed!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
