Time to put down the coffee.  Time to dust off the sewing machine!!!

I haven’t forgotten . . .

I still love the colors . . .

The outside of the tote bag will definitely be the green.  It’s an indoor/outdoor fabric, so it will be easy care, and it’s crisp — it will hold its shape beautifully.  The lining will be the quilted plaid, and the pockets will be the calicos, I’m not quite sure exactly how.  But I AM sure that it will have a button on one of the inside pockets.  Most all the bags I make HAVE to have a button (at LEAST one.)

If possible I like to use a vintage button.  This one I found in my box of old buttons that belonged to my grandmother.  I wish it were this big . . . but it’s not.  I enlarged the photo to view how pretty it is!

Time to start cutting!!!!
