|Maker's Tote: made for my aunty!|
A few months ago (okay it was actually back in December) my aunt was visiting and we got to talking about what kind of bag she'd like. I'd just made the Le Fluers Maker's Totes, which she liked a lot. I let her go through my stash of fabrics and pick her favorites, and then we narrowed it down to the fabrics used for this bag.

She requested I make the bag 2" wider, so it's a little bigger than the small version of the Noodlehead Maker's Tote pattern. So the interior slip pocket had enough space for an extra little divider for pens.

I tried to use coordinating fabrics for the visible areas, but used the contrasting fabrics she picked for the pocket linings:
The exterior is quilted (directly on the Soft and Stable) using a bunch of near-empty variegated Aurifil bobbins I had from my previous project. The fabric is from Lizzy House's Natural History line.
I tried to include the Heather Ross Mendocino swimming sister fabric wherever I could:

I was able to finish and mail it to her just in time for her birthday! Hurray!
