Finally another weekend is here and I don’t have any place to be today! Next Friday my husband and I have been invited to go over to a friends house for dinner. I thought it would be nice to bring a bottle of wine for a hostess gift. Recently I was at a local quilt shop and found a pattern for a wine carrier. Perfect! I now had a reason to make the bag. What a perfect project for a lazy Saturday. The pattern I used is called Holiday Cheers Wine Totes by The Sweet Tea Girls Patterns. The pattern makes a tote that looks like an elf boot, but by not adding the toe on it I made it into an all occasion wine tote. Start to finish the project took about 2 hours. He is a picture of the tote I made.
It is only early afternoon and now I can go back into my sewing room and play some more. I am really enjoying machine quilting. There is such a feeling of accomplishment as I finish each section and see the top come to life. I hope you all get a chance to enjoy the weekend and get some time doing the things you love to do!
