I've made another Tinker Tote from the Craftsy class, "Quilt-As-You-Go: Patchwork Bags with Tara Rebman" . It seems these fun little totes are becoming my "go-to" handmade gift this year. This one is for Arianna, who is visiting from Italy.

It takes me about 3 days to make one of these bags. Usually around the time I making the bias binding, I start thinking about how I probably could have made a simple quilt in the same amount of time.
But, since Arianna will likely not have room for an entire quilt in her luggage anyway, I am happy I made her this bag instead.
Her favorite color is blue. I had to add in some aqua scraps to fill out the bag. I hope they make it "interesting" and not just "weird".
If you want to make your own Tinker Tote (cough, Patti), I highly recommend "Quilt-As-You-Go: Patchwork Bags with Tara Rebman" - I reviewed the class HERE. I also talk about the adjustments I made to the pattern for my 2nd bag HERE.
Thanks for reading today,
