Flea Market Super Tote!

Happy Friday! It's sunny, it's almost weekend, I survived my first week at work, I have a new bag, what more can you want? (Actually, going back to work this week was super fun, I loved it!)
I realized pretty fast though that my sewing time will be limited from now on, but I managed to finish a project this week. And guess what, I made another Super Tote. Yep, that is number four. And I will keep this one all for myself.

My good friend Alison send me a package this week, and inside I found two fat quarters of Flea Market Fancy (the green and pink seedlings, my favorite print from that line!). So I pulled out the rest of my FMF stash and got to work. And this is the result:

Side one

Side two

This one has only one strap to wear it across the body, which I prefer when I'm out and about with the kids.

 I used the green seedlings for the inside pockets and the zipper panel. However, I did not have enough fabric for the whole lining, so I subsituted FMF with a print from the very first DS Quilts Collection.

I am so happy with this bag, it makes me smile whenever I use it!

I'm lining up with TGIFF and crazy mom quilts!


  1. Love the scrappiness of the strap and the pluses. Love. It.
