Tote bag for my mum

I told you I was obsessed with tote bags...

Tote number five 

I made this one for my Mum for her birthday.  It's similar to, but not quite the same as, the last version I made.

I didn't have a half yard of a single fabric I wanted to use to line this tote, so I used two fat quarters instead.  I rather like having two different fabrics for the lining.

If you'd like to make your own version of this tote, you can find the tutorial here.  I have fabrics picked to make one more, this time for myself, and I'm planning to make it giant so I can fit a whole bunch of quilting gear in there.  I have a reasonably formidable to-do list but these only take a couple of hours so I'm sure I'll find the time soon.

I'm going to link up this finish with crazy mom quilts.

I made two of these totes from your tutorial last week, I had a similar fabric to the aqua Echino birds fabric and a light bulb went on. I had wondered what to do with the fabric. I made a second one reversing the 2 main fabrics, and have gifted that to a friend. I am thinking of making 2 for the daughter-in-laws for Christmas. So quick easy and satisfying to make. Thanks so much for the tutorial.
