A Finish

large carry all tote with wooden dowel handles made with ugly fabric for our guild challenge

With a week to spare, I have a finish for 2009! This carry all tote was made with a yard of tulip fabric I received at the September, 2008, guild meeting. It was concealed in a paper bag for The Ugly Fabric Challenge. I quilted the tulip fabric to a lining of red with white hearts like the outside pockets. I add the checked fabric because the tulip fabric wasn't large enough for my pattern. It is huge and will hold a ton of supplies or carry quite a few quilts. We were photographed with our "ugly" fabric and those pics were shown on a screen at this past Wednesday's meeting while we held our finished projects and told what we made. It was a lot of fun and there were quite of few participants. Our webmaster, Judy, should have pictures of the event on our website in a few days.

Addition: I have an incorrect link for this giveaway and can't remember where I saw it. Sorry... Anyone know a Corinne who is hosting a giveaway?
There's still time to enter this giveaway from Corinne.

Ugly fabric challenge. Well...for some the fabric can be ugly but for others it can be beautiful. I think it looks great.

Nice job! Everyone needs a big tote like that one. As for the fabric being ugly, mmmm... I could easily play "can you top this"

The hand out the door ~ cracking me up, certainly a way to keep from becoming part of the picture!

Terrific bag! and yes, it does appear like it will hold plenty. Those "ugly" challenges always have the best completed projects!
