Many months ago a dear friend from “Down Under” suggested I make a tote to carry a mug in. I have been thinking about it a lot and finally decided to see if I couldn’t do it by sort of “challenging” the 6×10 hoop. I am so pleased that I have been able to do it. This is just the cutest little tote – fully lined (not a raw seam in sight) and it’s padded to make sure the mug/cup won’t get broken. It’s quite roomy, too. It easily holds a mug, a treat, a mug rug or two, napkins, and the back pocket can hold our new tea pocket. This so much fun to make. Wouldn’t these be great for Mom for Mother’s Day? But we have been thinking of lots of other uses, too. Change the wording on it to “get well soon”, or best wishes and then fill the little tote with favorite items and gift it. Have you started on a small needle craft like a small cross stitch pattern? Why not keep it in this little tote and take it with you while you wait in the doctor’s office. Depending on your choice of fabrics, you can also make this a little carrying tote for the Littlest Pet Shop “creatures”, or how about crayons and some smaller coloring books. I bet you could come up with some of your own uses for it. The handle is very sturdy and the little tote stands up quite nicely, without support.
Are you ready for some stitching fun? Check it out in our store. I think you will like making this project. Testers and I had a fun time stitching this. I hope you will give a try.
Oh, let you in on a secret…. there is a coffee tote coming, too. 🙂
