True Friends Tote Bag - My Version!!

I have had a busy weekend of wedding planning with our daughter and a surprise visit from one of my sisters on Sunday!   So .... not much stitching done .... but then again I am working on some surprise projects at the moment and can't really share them just yet!    I am making my version of Natalie Bird's "True Friends Tote Bag" from her "Red Home" book!!!

I have stitched in variegated DMC red thread (one of my favourite colours) and added the side borders already!

This gorgeous ric rac braid I purchased at Lynette Anderson's "Little Quilt Store" will do the job perfectly !!

And so I added it to the side pieces  ....

A finished front .... but now I have decided to applique some hearts instead of pockets ....


  1. Das sieht super aus.
    Liebe Grüße Grit
