Another day, another tote

While I took a break from the tedious cutting of fabric for the "monza" quilt, I whipped up this small-ish tote this afternoon during the bub's nap. This bag is for my 12 year-old cousin's birthday this weekend. She's just starting to get into fashiony stuff and its meant to go with a light blue dress that my mum got her.

Ever since making the colourful hot air balloon tote, I've had some good feedback from fellow bloggers and my family. My sister actually requested a similar bag for her birthday next month. And since March is the busy-birthday month for us, I'll be keeping occupied churning out the presents.....giving me an excellent excuse for the crafting, he he he.

You wouldn't know it, but that birdie applique was giving me some serious grief. Anyway, its beginning to grow on me....to the point where I think its kinda cute.
