Gear Up Tote

Time to say goodbye to May! Gracious, how time does fly!

Earlier in the week I finished another bag. I have been sort of eager to make a few bags for some reason. I may try to sell this one. It is a Sweetwater pattern called Gear Up Tote. I bought the pattern at Lavender Street Quilt Shop just outside of Cincinnati on our way to the quilt show in early April. They had a very pretty display set up, and I was caught - hook, line and sinker.

That yellow bag hanging in the center is the Gear Up Tote. Take a look at my version.

It is a very summery-looking bag, and would work great for carrying books and other necessities to the beach or pool. The outer fabric is sturdy Waverly canvas bought at an upholstery shop. The lining is some of my lovely Kaffe Fassett floral. I just love the combination.

Makes me happy to see such a happy bag. I think I will make more. I have a couple other fabrics pulled together for just that purpose.

Happy Quilting, Friends!
