The Very BIG Bag

I wanted to post a quick pick of the new carry all I put together the past few days.  The pattern was designed by Penny Sturges for a charm pack and it was published in the April 2009 issue of McCall's Quilting magazine. 
This is truly a big tote, I can see using it for the farmer's market or as a library bag or grocery bag or diaper bag, etc.  That is my 19 year old "baby" modeling it for me. :)  I still have to topstitch the opening and add a button or snap, I will gift it to a friend of mine to use at farmer's market in the summer.  To give you a better idea of size look at it next to my machine -

I used a little charm pack I won at a raffle last year.  It is a cute, fast project where you can showcase fabrics.  I made mine with longer straps than the pattern instructions because I would rather throw a bag over my shoulder or crossbody.  Hope you liked it.  Adios Bernie
