CQJP 2013 February Block Tote Bag
Some of you may recognize the block above. It was my February block for the Crazy Quilt Journal Project (CQJP) 2013. I'm afraid I only finished 4 blocks that year. My attempts at the short and long stitch method on my May block halted my progress. So, I have decided to put those blocks to use.
I adapted this tutorial from Pinterest to create a tote bag.
My husband and I join his parents and some of their family friends to play Pinochle every month, and in December we have a gift exchange. This year, we filled four totes with goodies. A Christmas towel, a matching tissue cover, a Christmas tissue cover, and a winter hand soap (I forgot to photograph) completed each gift.
I am looking forward to participating in CQJP 2016! This time, I plan to make an actual crazy quilt. The sign-ups closed yesterday. However, late entries may still be accepted. If you are interested, you may find more details here.
I am linking up with the Monday Stitchery Link Party at Super Mom - No Cape! again this week. It is a great place to visit for a free embroidery pattern and to find links to more eye candy. This week's embroidery pattern is a sweet angel. If you do any hand stitching and have a blog, I encourage you to join the fun!
Thank you for stopping by!
