My Outta Time Totes....

Well, so much for my posting weekly...I guess I am though, just very weakly! I have been working on bags recently and here are some of them. I bought Dog Under My Desk Erin's Outta Time Tote and I love it. I have finished two and have several more cut out and ready to go! It is such fun to sew and you know everyone loves a new tote! At least I hope so, since I am giving everyone I know their own tote!!! Hope you enjoy them.

The first one I made, I used some Heidi Grace fabric I found on sale. I am not much of a purple fan but this was so cute and so inexpensive on sale that I couldn't resist and luckily I  found a matching stripe to go with it. I made it for a friend who loves, loves, loves purple so I hope she loves this!

Here is the overall bag

The second one I made was in "my colors", blue and green. I made this for my hairdresser for her birthday. She, too, is a blue and green lover! I added the lime piping on the front for some pizzazz and I think it worked well. I used a lime zipper on the outside with the blue fabric and the blue inside with the lime. I love contrasts!

These are such fun totes to make! Be sure to check out Erin's blog for the rest of her patterns!


  1. They look wonderful and I am sure they will be so practical.

  2. Just love those fabrics, too. Maddie loves her blue and green dragonfly pillowcase of the same pattern.

  3. They turned out just lovely Sue!!
