Charming Tote for the Fast Finish!!!

Thanks so much for all of the kind words after my post about my 1/4" mix up the other day!!!   It put a smile on my face to read them and yesterday I went down to my sewing room to start cutting out new squares.  But honestly, I just didn't want to re-cut everything, so instead, I decided to make a Charming Tote.   I needed a special little gift and knew this would be just perfect :) 

So I put everything else aside and laid out my squares.  I decided to use a favorite charm pack,  Olive's Flower Market by Lella Botique.  I have been stashing this for a bit waiting for the perfect project and it certainly made me smile to pull it out!!!   (and if you love this line, but can't find it anymore,  Farmer's Daughter is a similar color scheme with yellow added ;) 

I started stitching away and before I knew it, I had the tote made, the lining stitched and the handles sewn ready to all be assembled.  And then of course, I had to break for lunch ;)

But as soon as I got home from taking the little one to Kindergarten, I was back to the sewing machine and finishing up my tote ;)   And I just love it!!!   And the best news of all, I had such a boost of motivation after this fast finish, I totally pulled out the fabrics from Thursday's post, and got them all cut out right!!!   So ya, sometimes a fast finish is just what ya need!!!
