I was extremely flattered to be asked to be part of the Heartland Blog Tour. It is being hosted by Amy Friend of During Quiet Time, and features this gorgeous collection by Pat Bravo. I have loved Art Gallery Fabrics since I came across them about 4 years ago. They had me at first touch. The hand of these cottons is awesome.
For this project, I chose to make a Maker’s Tote. I’ve started one in the past but made the mistake of putting it down and figured this would give me the impetus to get both finished. We’ll see how that goes.
If you’ve followed along on my crafting journey, you know I’m a major lover of pouches. All sorts of pouches and have conquered, for the most part, my fear of zippers.
This particular pouch was a learning experience to say the least. BUT, I finished it. I’m pretty sure I over-batted certain parts of it which lead to a battle between my fingers and the binding. My fingers won but there were a few casualties. 🙂
When I first saw this collection, I knew I had to include the owls. They are just too cute.

oh this is lovely! Nicely chosen fabric mix – I'm sure you'll get alot of use out of this bag!
Beautiful bag Jade! It's on my "to make" list too. I have selected fabrics for it multiple times but as much as I like finished bags, I do not enjoy sewing them. Thank you for participating!
Gorgeous tote! Great choice!
Those owls seem to be a hit with everyone.
Beautiful tote, great use of the fabrics. I really like the owls.
This turned out awesome! I love the look of the Maker Tote, but I haven't conquered my fear of zips yet!!!!! ��
Wonderful bag made with great fabrics!
