I’m still on the tote kick. They are fun, pretty easy, and as long as you don’t do something crazy, they can be quick too.
But my motto? Go crazy!
Crazy squares that is.
I decided to make a bunch of crazy squares and start assembling them into a new tote bag. I’m using “blender” fabrics and a skinny jelly roll in black. Blenders are solid color with a small print in a shade or two darker, as you can see in the picture below.
I made enough to do one side of the tote so far.
Although I will be adding more black to the bottom once I get the other side ready. I want to make sure I adjust correctly for how much will end up as the “bottom” side of the tote bag.
I originally was going to do smaller strips of crazy pieces alternated with black strips for the other side. But then I decided to try designing an applique project, which then turned into what will be the other side.
Don’t worry about that wrinkle in the background. The kitty is not stitched down yet. I was auditioning colors to be the background. I’m loving my colorful cat!
I wonder what I should make next, after this is finished. Any ideas?
