Quilt With Us

 

There are so many projects in Fresh Fabric Treats that would be such fun to make for gifts, that I had a bit of a hard time choosing just one.  For my "Gifty" project, I chose the Pack 'n Go Tote, made from 2-1/2" strips and I chose Jubilee Garden for the fabrics.

Making this bag was fun, and the instructions were clear and easy to follow.  I did add an inside pocket, because despite all the outside pockets, I thought one inside would be nice.  I divided it up into sections to accommodate a pen, my cell phone, and perhaps a little note pad. 

 The little pouch that I made to go with the bag was a free download from the Moda Bake Shop called "Strippy Charm Pouch", and I had plenty of strips left over from the bag to make it.  It's the perfect size for a little makeup or even a camera.

Since this "Gifty" is for me, the plan is to take it along when we go on a cruise in January to celebrate our 40th Wedding Anniversary.  I'll do my best to pack it full of stuff!
