Charm Square and Fat Quarter Mini Tote
A few months ago, I picked up a charm pack of Kate Spain's Terrain fabric from a local quilt show. I made a few mug rugs from the charms, but I saved myself enough charms to make a project for myself - the colors are so gorgeous!
Recently, I decided to make myself a mini tote using 18 charms (9 on each side) and 2 charms for a pocket on the inside. I also used 2 fat quarters of Amy Butler's Martini dot fabric (in two colors) to piece together the inside and the strap. I think it turned out really pretty. I need to take the time to switch my things into this tote and start carrying it!
What do you think? Is this something I should try making for the shop?
