A couple of gifts finished.

Tiny Tot Totes for the little nephews. We sit with them at church more often than not and they like Littlest Miss's magnetic drawing board, so I got each of them one and made them their own bag, one blue, one red. I found the fabrics in the fat quarter bin at Jo-Ann Fabrics.
Those cowboys are so cute! I did have a little trouble in that after I squared up the cowboy fats, they were an inch too short for my original directions. They were really crooked! So the bags ended up a bit smaller than normal. They still work though!

I made a change to the handles, by adding yet another round of stitching. That is 3 times top-stitching around the handle. I did this to see if it would help with the scrunching problem Littlest Miss has on her bags.


  1. Love your little totes. The cowboy fabric is so cute.

  2. That is so cute and such a lovely gift.
