Kinda like the Three Bears
The Music City Modern Quilters do a Secret Santa swap each year. My designated recipient said "surprise me"! The only hints she gave were that she likes batiks and colors. Rather than do another mini-quilt I decided to attempt a quilty non-quilt project. I chose the Travel Iron Tote pattern by Sisters' Common Thread.
The pattern was a lot easier than it looks, but it still took quite a bit of concentration at first. However, it was a bit small for the iron I had purchased to go in it.
|First Tote -- Too Small|
|Second Tote -- Too Big|
Still needing a Secret Santa gift for the modern guild party, I attempted a third tote once I got home from the retreat where I could use my heavy-duty machine. Tote #3 was JUST RIGHT!
|Tote 3 -- Just Right!|
|Tote 3 exterior|
|Tote 3 interior|
The pattern got easier with each one I made. I'll keep the small one for myself and just let the cord hang out.
