Charming Tote for Josie!!

 Yup, it's another Charming Tote!!!  I have totally lost track of how many of these I have made, but they are just so much fun to make and whip up so fast.   If you haven't made one yet, you can pop over here for the free step by step tutorial to whip one up ;)  All you need is a Charm Pack and 2/3 Yard of a coordinating print.  But fair warning, you can't make just one ;)  

This particular Charming Tote is for Jocelyn.  She started piano lessons and wanted a tote just like her siblings.   I let her go through my Charm Pack  Stash (which has quite a few to choose from :)  and she decided on the Modern Farmhouse 5" Stacker by Simple Simon and Company for Riley Blake Designs.  I think she really liked the Rose Gold in it ;)  And didn't it make just the cutest tote . . . held by the cutest girl, I might add :)  

I quilted this tote with an all over Curly Q design.  I liked how it repeated some of the vines in the prints.   Jocelyn picked a Black Blossoms Basic by Christopher Thompson for Riley Blake Designs for the lining and handles.  It was a super great match!!  

And now she is enjoying getting to take it back and forth to Piano Lessons.   These are just the perfect tote for music lessons, in fact, they are a perfect tote for just about anything, hence why I have made so very many of them ;)   I hope you enjoy making them as much as I do.

I am off to the Panguitch Quilt Walk (And yes, I have a few Charming Tote's packed with quilting goodies :)  and will post about it as soon as I get back.   I will try to remember to post on social media while I am there, but I always seem to get so wrapped up in class, I never grab my phone ;)  

I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting (and Charming) Day!!!
