I'm cutting it close this month for the Monthly Make-It Challenge. I really didn't have anything to show.
I rummaged around and found a piece of embroidery that I had done about 2 years ago. The embroidery pattern was a freebie but I can't remember the source that I got it from at the moment. If anyone recognizes it let me know.
I had a fat quarter from the Sew-Sisters Bargain Lover's Club that I really didn't think I could use for anything but it matched the embroidery perfectly. I teamed them up together and made this little tote bag last night. The embroidery was done on a piece of unbleached cotton and I lined the bag with a remnant of sheeting which is a bit lighter shade than the fabric.

|The finished size is about 10 1/2 in. by 13 in.|
Perfect for carrying a book or a magazine:)
I'm also joining up with the Needle&Thread Network. Please come over and visit and see the work of some talented Canadians.
I usually link up my other blog A Cloth Doll Maker's Diary and it's not a WIP but today I thought I'd do something different.
