We are SO excited to be a part of this amazing magazine (and blog tour!) again. We were ecstatic to receive the magazines in the mail and find our block was featured on page 4! The details of the block are really great.
We've been loving birds lately. The simple shape of their bodies are really quite easy to applique and who doesn't love embroidery details!? So fun! Our block is called Birds of a Feather no. 604, and is found on page 23.
Truth be told, I have a little bit of an obsession for tote bags. I love taking them to the library, to hold half the children's section when my kids go. I love taking them to church, on a picnic, to the zoo. So when I decided to save a little cash, and make my own, I went straight to our block.
You have no idea how happy I am about this. We bought a pack of plain canvas totes and went to town! A little applique, some favorite scraps, the remainder of brown floss in my stash (confession: our embroidery floss stash is just as
insane impressive as our fabric stash) and ta-da! A one-of-a-kind, made-by-you bag, perfecting for toting all of life.
Not stopping at one, we took just part of our block and made a little pocket for the front.
Babysitting bag. This girl is a genius. We said yes. She couldn't decide!
