WIP Wednesday :: TOTES

I have been working on my bags/totes, I may have gotten a little over ambitious, but it is all good.  As of last night I completed 4 - 241 Totes (pattern by Noodlehead).  It is a really simple pattern, quick and easy to assemble and really cute!

Three of the six bags I have completed are here.  The fabric is from IKEA and the black and white ones look SOOO much cuter in real life.  Two of these bags will become teachers gifts.

Better picture of the colourful one!

The next one also looks better in person, although it does hang differently because I added a top zipper.  I did not plan the zipper well, but it turned out okay, I hope at least.  This purse went to my Mother-in-Law.

I still have two more ready to go, one is another gift, then I will have two to find homes for.

I actually  made the top one, but have a similar one ready to go.
I have two more teachers gifts to go.  One is getting a bird tote, like the one I made here and the other is getting homemade chocolate chip cookies.  They are on my to do list tonight.  Last day of school is almost here!!

I am linking up with WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced, so I will add my WIP list of 2013.

In Progress (Current progress in blue)
  1. My Daughter's Farmer's Wife quilt :: 20 of 35 completed blocks, plus partial blocks.  I am dedicating Saturday to making headway on this.
  2. My Son's quilt :: not yet started
  3. Knit Entrelac Cape :: Done, but not blocked, why is it not blocked?  I LOST it!!!  I am really hoping it is in my house, where else could it be?  It has been missing for a couple months now :(
  4. Lark Kaleidoscope quilt :: fabric's stashed away, just need the courage to start it to finish number 1. on the list first.
  5. Fleece Slippers for me :: I made one in November - I must make the second one. (yeah, yeah, I am a crafty loser, one slipper done and my focus changes!!)

Part of me thinks that I am very good at not buying fabric, I think that is because I don't buy as much as I would like.  The reality is, I have too many supplies for projects that I have not started yet.

Today, I took steps to help that.  I completed one tote and cut fabric for two more.

The tote is a super cute outdoor fabric.  I have more fabric and plan to make more.  I think I would like one to carry my books to my community club meetings.

Next up, 241 Tote.  I finally gave in.  I see pictures of the 241 Tote in so many different fabrics, and I love them.  I finally took the plunge and plan to make a few.  Below are two that I have cut out, but I think I may make at least one more.  I need to get shopping and buy some zippers!
