More Charming Totes from More Charming Young Women

 So I was going through my camera roll the other day and realized I missed posting some very important finishes!!!!   Way back in 2017 I posted some adorable Charming Totes made by some adorable Young Women in our church :)  And when I was going through my film roll, I realized I never posted the next group of girls and their finishes from last year.  So today I am going to share them!!    One night a month, for several months, I taught these amazing girls how to make Charming Totes.    Each girl (including 2 of my own) picked their own charm pack and then cut, stitched and quilted!  For a few of them, it was their first time using a sewing machine, and they all did great!!!  So lets see their finishes!!! 

Jocelyn (my baby girl)  used Mama's Cottage by April Rosenthal for Moda Fabrics

Kamryn (my girl who just got her learner's permit!!) used Seaside by Tasha Noel for Riley Blake.

Maren used Just Another Walk in the Woods by Stacy Iest Hsu for Moda

Bristol used all of the extra charms from everyone's totes and made a scrappy one, so cute!! 

Sierra used Badda Bing by Me and My Sister Designs for Moda

Addy used Fairy Edith by Amanda Castor for Riley Blake Designs

Rosie used Flora and Fawn by Amanda Herring for Riley Blake Designs.  

Emmy used Harmony by Sweetwater for Moda

Didn't they all do such a great job!!!  I just love them, and it really was so fun to see them grow in confidence in front of a sewing machine.   To the point where they were super excited to try the long arm, so great!!!    Way to go girls!!!

And just FYI,  if you want to make your own Charming Tote, I have a free Step by Step tutorial right over here ;)  You just need a Charm Pack and 2/3 yard of fabric to start!!  They are so much fun to make and are wonderful Christmas presents.  But I am warning you, you can't stop at making just 1 :)  

I hope you all have a very Happy Quilting Weekend!!!

Pin It!


  1. It's wonderful to see our girls (and guys) take up a craft like this! My grand daughter quilts as well as crochets and cross stitches - she's 11. Thanks for the photos and the tote making site. I'll save the site for when I visit the family next and see if she'd like to make one. Blessings!

  2. Wow. Very fun. I loved seeing all the different charms and scraps in action. I'll bet the girls will have those and use them for a very long time.


Thank you so much for your sweet comments. I just love hearing from you!!
Have a Happy Quilting Day :)
