You may have noticed that I didn’t blog last week and there was a genuine reason for that.
You see it was Jo’s birthday, (Jo is a friend of mine) and her present was the item to be featured in my blog.
As she reads my blog, I didn’t want to spoil the surprise.
What did you make? I hear you ask.
Well, Jo is the proud owner of a little dachshund, and last year at a Quilt Guild meeting they had a remnant of fabric with sausage dogs on.
I had to have it!
Of course then I had to come up with something to make from it. As usual I headed to Pinterest where I conveniently have a board named “Bags of Bags”.
I decided on a tote bag, as you can never have too many, especially when they’re this cute.
I used the free pattern for the “three fabric, ten step tote bag” on the website sew mccool.com. But as you’ll see I only used two fabrics.
I was so pleased with how the bag looked, and the birthday girl was delighted with her gift.
