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!
Another project finished!

That is a great tote and a really nice choice of fabrics… Love the bound seams.
Great job Erica, I really like the school bag that you made. You should be very proud of it, and it sounds like it will be wonderful for school. A new bag for a new job at a new school—–how great is that?
Love You and have a great weekend
I love the bag. It really came out nice. I love your blog too, it
