Another “Charmed” Bag and Mail’s Here!

DSCF3028

I just had to make another one of the bags that my friend Holly taught us earlier in the month.  I kept perusing charm packs online and nothing really struck my fancy.  Last week, while I was at one of my LQS’s (The Quilt Hut), they actually had a couple of these “Happy” jelly rolls.  Before I knew it, one was in my shopping bag and I was on my way home with it.

I thought about it and decided to make another bag.  This one is a little bit smaller than the one with charm squares, but I like the size. It is just perfect to put my laptop in with some room for a book or two and a few other items without being too squished.

The mail came today with some great treats for me that I can’t wait to play with it…

Six different colors of dye (2 reds, two blues, and two yellows), some soda ash, and a drop cloth.  I also have some dye books coming too.

A Charming Tote

On Saturday, my bee the Sassy S & B Quilters, had an awesome class taught by Holly.  Many of us made a charm square tote.

Though I got off to a rough start, I managed to get the pieced prepped for assembly and then today, I completed my bag.

Thank you Holly for such a wonderful class and I can’t wait to make another tote!  (Though my husband looked at it and said – but don’t you have a ton already?? – he just doesn’t understand!)
