Allatoona Tote Bag Exchange

Today was the December meeting of the Allatoona Guild. One of the things we did was have a tote bag exchange. Here is the tote bag I made. I covered embroidery hoops with fabric for the handles. I put pockets inside, including one with a zipper. I then made a cell phone bag that is tied to the handle and can go inside the bag or hang on the outside. Lastly, I made a Tote Along bag that fits in one the pockets. I think the person who received it was pleased.

The fabric is from Amy Butler's latest line - I think it is called Daisy Chain. I used 5 different fabrics all together.

Here is the bag I received in the exchange. Jean made it and she did a great job. She also used Amy Butler fabrics - Midwest Modern. The pattern is one that several people made. Lots of different fabrics and looks but they were all great

Here is the back of the bag. It is a nice size bag and I feel very fortunate to have received it.

This last photo is of the bag that Mary received. While it is a purchased bag, instead of homemade, it is very nice and she was pleased with it.
We had lots of happy faces after the exchange.
By the way, I was voted in as President for 2009 and I am looking forward to a wonderful year.


  1. great bags

  2. All the bags are great. What a good idea to have a tote bag exchange!

  3. So, wait, for three days you were presidents of TWO guilds? Bless your heart. :)

  4. 2 guild meetings the same day? That's a lot of pressure to get the projects done for each by the same time! Do they both meet close to where you live?
    Hope next week is easier for you!

  5. Hello! I got my apron a few days ago! I love it! Thank you so very much! I wrote a post about it on my blog!

    God Bless,


I would love to hear from you. Make sure I have a way to contact you if you have a question.
