the social tote.

It’ll hold your handwork.

And she was a collaborative effort between myself and the very talented Anna Graham of Noodlehead. If you don’t know Anna’s work already, you should definitely check it out. She’s great and was so much fun to work with. (I’ve made her stuff here and here–see Super Tote.)

There’s more.

We’ve got a pin cushion in there too. And she fits perfectly.

And since I’ve been getting inquiries, fabric creds here and here. (Sorry but it looks like the 3rd print is no longer available.) Superbuzzy has been a real terror on my checking account.

    Love this! Jemellia just gave this pattern to a lady in our guild who’s moving away. (Boo hoo.) I get a funny feeling I’ll be making one/some, eventually, too! BTW, I am enrolled in The Local Quilt BOM and can’t wait to get that underway, too. I’ve got three months’ packets—just haven’t committed to starting. Part of me has thought of reworking the blocks to replicate some of my former houses. Now, wouldn’t that be fun—or the perfect procrastination ploy? 😉

      Awesome, Ann! Can’t wait to see what you make with Local, and I’m really glad you like social. 🙂

    This pattern is absolutely brilliant. I love your fabric choices. And, yes, I know exactly what you mean about Superbuzzy… 🙂
