Item #2
Playful Dick and Jane Denim Tote ~ I machine quilted the front of the bag , added large and fun large green rick rack and used a pair of jeans to the bottom portion and handles.

Denim handles have sweet red hearts that have been machine embroidered.... gingham closure..and what would a Dick and Jane bag be without a little Scotty Dog button? This is a stacked button closure with a red heart button (to match the hearts on the handle) and little Mr. Scotty....

...close up of this print! Sweet faces of children, teddy bears, red wagon, lollipops, cars...too cute!

...sweet Michael Miller red gingham fabric backing with machine grid quilting for strength...a sweet cherry print for the inside ~ free form machine quilting so the quilt batting won't slip...

...a red gingham divided pocket for holding all of your small things...
This sweet bag is 14.5" wide, 12.5" tall with a 4" gusset. The handles have a 13" drop from your shoulder. My bags are double stitched for durability, treated with Scotchguard and fully lined using a poly quilting batting.
$40. plus shipping
Item #3
Hee Haw!! This is a rootin-tootin cute Cowboy tote bag made of one of my favorite Michale Miller fabrics. Aren't they just the cutest? Look at the little dog at the bottom sneaking up for some Cowboy grub!
(pardon my pics...I could not get the lighting right on our rainy day...)

...a happy little face! Vintage yellow rick rack frames the center piece and along the sides, bottom and handles I used vintage blue ticking fabric. A red bandana fabric closure and stacked buttons. Black rick rack finishes the top edge.

..close up of the details..

...the back side with more ticking and cut-outs of the cute little Cowboys and dog...these have been applied with iron-on interfacing, cut out with a scalloped edge scissor and machine stitched. The handles are more of the ticking and are lined with iron on Pellon interfacing. The bag is also lined with Pellon and the back has a soft polyfil quilting batting for softness.

The inside is a high quality red gingham fabric, by Michael Miller, and has a divided pocket made out of black and white polka dots and more of those appliqued little Cowboys with sweet little smiling faces.

Size: 11 1/2" across, 12" deep with a 4 1/2" gusset. The handles have a 15" drop from your shoulder.

$38. plus shipping.
