Yarned and Dangerous [A finish]

Cue a flurry of blog posts as we approach the end of the Quarter! One of the projects I wanted to make this quarter was a gift for Linda. I had the idea just before Christmas - too close to Christmas to do anything about. I found something online with the phrase "Yarned and Dangerous" and I had to use it on something. I also had a panel from Ruby Star Society which had an owl on it - and she loves owls - so I put the two ideas together as a tote bag.



I used the My First Alphabet pattern by From Blank Pages for the letter and went quite scrappy with the blues and a selection of warm low volume fabrics - and just a splash of pink, because everything is better with pink!

The owl panel was bordered to bring it up to size. I made this just after the All The Single Ladies bag and I experimented a big with some foam interfacing on this tote bag. This bag also required less quilting - the result is a very structured bag - probably a bit too structured if I'm honest - I definitely prefer the weight of the All The Single Ladies bag, but I think I can still do better.



The "binding" around the top of the bag was a happy accident. The foam was too chunky to turn the lining all the way to the inside, so I embraced it and top-stitched with the edge of the lining showing on the outside and I love the look of this.

And I'm pretty sure Linda likes it - I know she is using it!  This is a quarter 1 finish from my Finish Along List.
