New project

I started a new project last night.  I must remember to start these projects BEFORE 10 p.m.  I didn't get very far but we'll see how it ends up.  Can YOU tell what my new project is?


Don't worry if you can't.  I wouldn't be able to and I KNOW what it should be.  It's my attempt at a purse/tote pattern.  It's from Missouri Quilt Company.  You are suppose to get 3 bags from one charm pack (and a little extra fabric).  I'm not that ambitious yet since I've never made a tote or bag with lining so it's small baby steps for me.

I enlarged it so you can see the quilting done at the top of the picture.  I am doing that all the way through.  No lining yet.  Just sewing the top to the batting and quilting and THEN I'll use the top as my pattern to cut out the lining.  So try to imagine that folded in half.  The dark brown is the bottom of the bag.  The six charm squares the top.  I'll keep you posted on how it turns out (ie, if it will be useable or not).
