More sewing

I've made a few more blankets over the last few weeks and last night I attempted my first tote bag from scratch. All have turned out great! Here are the baby blankets I've made.

I love the green and blue together. This blanket was given to Trevor Anthony, Rebecca's new baby cousin, born to Dan's sister Debbie and her husband Greg. This next blanket I sewed ric-rac inside the edge. It worked out pretty well, but was a lot of work because I felt like I was sewing blind. I only had to go back a resew a small portion. I love this last fabric! Sorry it's upsidedown :) Here is the tote that I made. This week is Teacher Appreciation and also Daycare Provider Appreciation. So this bag is for Angie, who watches Rebecca. I have put lining in already made totes a few times, but this is the first time that I made the tote myself. I also put interfacing in the tote so it would stand up on it's own. I love how it turned out! It only took a 1/2 yard of each fabric. I filled the bag with some books for the kids. Rebecca was so excited to give Angie her "surprise" this morning.


  1. Wow!! You do great work Sarah!! I love the tote!!

  2. You are becoming quite a pro. Happy to see you attempted a homemade tote.

  3. Hey, how about big sister appreciation -- I could use a new tote :) Maybe you'll get my name for Christmas again!

    Good work,
