a quick bag

And an even quicker post. It's hard to sit inside at the computer when it's 75 degrees (in May!!!) and looks like this outside:

I've had this awesome printed panel from Amy for months. Even though she includes a pattern with it for making the cutest mini quilt, I always thought that I'd like it on a tote bag. But I never got around to making it. After I saw this bag yesterday, I had no more excuses!

Following the ever popular Jane Market Bag pattern, I grabbed fabrics from my stash and got to work this morning while the kids slept in. An hour and a half later, I had a bag.

I've also got a little helper who is popping a new tooth/getting over a cold and cranky as ever. The only thing that he wants to do is be held or play outside on the deck. So off we go.

Have a great weekend! I hope it's full of sunshine and fun.

You did an awesome job and I love the fabric you used for that. I know I'm going to have to make another one as my friend just loves this but wants another color. I just happen to love orange :)
Hope your baby is feeling better soon. It's hard cutting teeth!!

I really like the fabrics you chose! I am always happy to see my printed fabrics turn into something!

The bag turned out great! Enjoy your Memorial Day weekend and good luck with the pottyb training! At least being out on the desk is nice and sunny and warm - looks like you've got some fabulous weather. Unlike here in Vancouver where it is supposed to be nice and warm, but it is cold and wet and feels like November :( Ah well, I'll just stay inside and sew

Enjoy the glorious weather!
