I Heart Dresdens Tote Bag
Yesterday I shared my review of the quilt book Uncommonly Corduroy and here is the I Heart Dresdens tote that I made. I just love it!
Here is the photo of the one in the book.
I really enjoyed making this tote in Uncommonly Corduroy: Quilt Patterns, Bag Patterns, and More by Stephanie Dunphy.
I just grabbed squares from my stash and started putting it together. I really liked the grey background and I also planned on making a red tote……but I didn’t pay attention until my Dresden was together and realized…….I didn’t add any red.
The projects in the book were made with corduroy but I just used the cottons I had on hand. I just happened to have a bunch of this bright lime green so that is the color of my tote. Most of my quilt project decisions are made this way……
The bad side has a huge pocket, I decided to add a little batting to it and then quilt it. I used orange thread.
In most of the photos there isn’t a button on the front because I didn’t have it on yet. Now I do.
For the inside of the bag I used this cute dot, I like a light colored inside. The pattern called for one pocket but I added two.
Are you wondering how big the tote is???? I had Builder Bob snap a picture of me so you could see that it is a nice size. The directions were easy to follow and there were plenty of pictures.
Notice anything different?????? No more grey hair, I tried it for a year and just didn’t like it. The funny thing is….no one but me seems to notice but I’m happier.
