The Professional Tote pattern, by Creative Thimble is an excellent design. It creates a tote that has approximate measurements of 18″Wide X 15″ Tall X 5″ Deep, with a variety of zippered and non-zippered pockets. This large tote bag works well traveling, as it is designed to easily hang on roll-able luggage, making this bag perfect for many travel situations, and other uses, such as that four letter word “work”.
I’ve seen classes, at various quilt shops, with this design and I decided to sign up and take a class with Jan Hayman, at Cozy Quilt Shop. Jan had made this design many times, and had many tips to share.
It was a fun class and I enjoyed seeing a variety of fabric prints and colors used to create this tote. And everyone’s tote turned out beautifully.
And I had fun finishing it at the Mogle Mountain Quilt Retreat in Truckee (near Tahoe), California this past week.
