Wednesday WIP





Well I have finally started my 241 Tote Bag.  The focal front and back pieces have been pieced together, with some of my favourite quilting fabrics, shot cotton, linen and shirtweight denim scraps.  I have also used a little piece of fringed selvedge from one of my linen pieces for added texture. I have used fusible lightweight fleece on the back, and just need to decide whether to do some quilting on these pieces, before I start assembling the rest of the bag.

Very much inspired by the lovely bags made by Melissa (Clothwork on Flickr) .  I am hoping to have this finished  by the weekend

Linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.
