Crossing Something Off the List

I can mark something off my 100 day Hustle list!!! YAY! I finished my 241 tote! Pattern is by Anna of Noodle Head.
I used up my FQ's I bought from Julie of The Intrepid Thread. I don't know how many of y'all remember, but she sponsored a giveaway on my blog a while back, and I loved the bundle she made for it so much I HAD TO BUY IT! I'm really glad I found such a good use for them!
I used a QAYG (quilt as you go) method for the first time! It is a bit more time consuming, but hey, I like the end results! The print fabric I used are from the line Lily Belle by Bari J for Art Gallery! I love the feel of their fabrics! The solids I'm honestly not sure, I KNOW they aren't Kona. I use Kona on a daily basis, and I'm thinking these are some of Art Gallery's solids line.

I'm SEW HAPPY with the way this turned out!

I love the way this fussy cutting of the flower really paid off on this side!
If you are interested in making a bag like this you can purchase the pattern from Anna here. You can also find all of her other patterns here.  This is my first ever "pattern" that I have EVER followed! I found it EXTREMELY easy to follow! Sew, I know if I can make this, so can you!!!
I also made me a pretty little pouch with my left overs!

I used the QAYG method here as well.

I did inted on it being wonky. I love the way it turned out too!!!

I love the color of that blue! Don't you?
And if you are wondering...I did take these pics with A REAL CAMERA!!! Edited them and all! Aren't ya proud of me?
I know I am!
Sew, now that I got that one done, it's time to get back to sewing and cross something else off my Hustle List.
On a side note...I hope everyone traveling to Sewing Summit this weekend has a  GREAT TIME and a SAFE TRIP!!!!
~Hope y'all are having a great day!~
