Painted Canvas.....Tote Bag 2

Remember when we made some

I used a piece of my canvas to make this tote bag:

I didn't take in-process photos while stitching up

the tote it is all sewn up and waiting

for the painted handles to dry...

Here it is completed with the handles...

It is lined...

The sides and bottom are quilted...

I created this bag in a class

It is a 2 sided bag.....lots of FUN!

Here are a few of the students with their 

messy painted canvas tote bags:






We celebrated with margaritas!

Many Thanks to our instructor, Donna Irons.

She came all the way from Idaho 
to teach this class!

The light today was just right for photographs...

The yellow iris always bloom first and fast!

Be sure to double click photos to enlarge them...

The Lupine are also in bloom...

Over the years, my photography has inspired

some of my quilt making...

This is an iris quilt created in 2011:
