Another Tinker Tote - a finish Friday

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,

I LOVE comments, they make my day! Most of the time I am too distracted to respond right away, but I DO read them...always.

When I respond, I usually do it via email. Sometimes Google makes this easy and sometimes it doesn't. I usually only reply when it is easy. Just sayin.

Obviously, I can't reply to you at all if you are a no reply blogger. Also, sorry to Anonymous commentors, too much spam lately. You will have to leave a comment another way.

Have a Super Sparkly Day!
