A Blooming QAYG Tinker Tote

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I've never been so happy with a project that I thought up the color scheme and design for myself! I'm very proud of the way this bag looks. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Don't skip ANY of the videos. Even if you're sure you know how to, say, cut the pattern out. Tara offers many tips relevant to other projects while she's doing the simplest things in the videos.

What you will need

  • Essex Linen for bag bottom and binding
  • various quilting cottons for bag outer
  • Pearl Bracelets in Meyer lemon for bag lining
  • Pellon Decor Bond interfacing
  • lots of Aurifil thread

It may seem crazy and unplanned, but the technique is called "blooming quilt as you go." Look it up on Pinterest! It makes LOVELY pillows!
