Quilted Tote

 It's my Grandma's 93rd birthday this week, so I made her something special. This is a small tote bag that attaches to her walker. I made her one a couple of years ago and she uses it all the time. Its a very simple design that just buttons in the front, and is open for easy access. I found this pretty hydrangea print at my local fabric store Fabricland, in colors that she would like, but added the flower buttons for a little extra flash. I also added a little pocket for keys. The outside is quilted with a cotton batting to make it stiffer. I never quilted anything before, I just marked lines one inch apart, diagonally.  It hangs nicely, and makes carrying things a little easier. 

Pin It Now!
