Guess what?! I finished up my Tinker Tote! What a great feeling to get another project off the list, and I actually brought it and used it while shopping at the Farmers Market already!
If you're new here, UFO Fridays are where you carve out 15 minutes of your day to work on a UFO (Unfinished Object), with the objective of finishing it up! I work on the same UFO every Friday until it's finished.
Besides the quilt as you go technique, the rest of the bag went together pretty quick! It would be a great scrap buster project!
I used leather for the bottom of my bag, I actually bought it from Ebay. I'm not a pro on purchasing leather, I'm not even sure I got a good deal on mine but I sure do love it! It has a nice soft feel, and more importantly is a light weight leather so it wasn't hard for my machine to sew through! I have enough little scraps that you'll probably be seeing accents on my next zippy pouches.
I really did enjoy the project, so much so that I'm not denying the fact I'll probably be making another one soon.
My next UFO will be the Block of the Month Houses we did some time back. While I finished all the blocks, I never sewed them together!
