Mystery Project Finished

 

Here is my mystery project that I gave you a glimpse of yesterday.  I made myself a new tote bag for the new school year.  It will be just perfect for lugging home all of the papers that I will have to grade.  Plus, it is washable!  The whole bag is pieced and machine quilted by me.  I used 3 Sister’s “Martinique” jelly roll and a yard of heavy weight blue ticking fabric.  I also used some of the left over pot holder batting instead of just regular batting because I wanted it to be more heavy-duty.  I also lengthened the straps to 26″ instead of 21″.  Where did I get this wonderful idea?  Right here on the Moda BakeShop Blog.  I am so happy with the finished project, and actually since each of the inside seams are covered with binding, it is just as cute inside out.  It reminds me of a Vera Bradley bag except that I love these fabrics and never really like the fabrics on her bags.

Here are a few more pictures.  Oh and I added buttons to where the handles attach.  Just a little shine!

Here is the inside.  Lots of room!
