Afternoon Sewing ebook: Jillian Reversible Tote

A ebook called Afternoon Sewing featuring awesome bags that you can whip up in an afternoon ...heck yeah!

This lovely tote was a very easy sew ..and when I say easy, I mean ...super easy!  The hardest thing about making this bag was convincing the kids that this was in fact for me and no, not for them!  They liked the super bright colours but hey, this rainbow is for me!

I was going to use just a plain awesomely bright print but I couldn't choose one then I remembered the jelly roll sitting on the shelf awaiting the perfect project AND it gave me a chance to practice my 'quilt as you go' technique that I originally had used on my first sewn bag (here...).

I think I'll make a couple more and pop aside for gifts. What do you think, is this something that you'd love to receive as a gift?

Grab the fun pattern here.  
The bright, cheery fabric is from this new line.

I'm just waiting on a delivery of some bag hardware, then I plan to make the Night Out Clutch. The mail is a little slow lately as we've had a really, really big storm here and everything is damaged, water logged and many people are still without power (even 4 days after the storm). We were lucky and had no storm damage, even Joe's school was closed the day after because it was flooded. Once life is back to normal, you'll find me next to my sewing machine once again!
