A pretty tote and happy mail

I am so excited I just had to share this with you guys!!! I know I've told you all about my "obsession" with online swaps, well I just received my package from The Sewing Room Swap!!! My partner did AMAZING!!!! Wanna see what I got???

I got this lovely mini quilt along with that fabulous bunting and a few extras!!! It was a very happy mail day for me!!!!

I've already hung it up on my wall!!! (my sewing room just happens to double as my bedroom so I have PLENTY of wall space!)

See??? It looks fantabulous!!!! (ignore the color of my walls, I really need to paint, I hate that color!) I should have taken a picture of my other amazing mini I got from the Modernista Swap. It's above the head of my bed...*note to self-"TAKE PICTURE"*

Oh and look what I made!!!

My cousin asked me to make her a tote bag for her to put her work things in....her favorite color (I bet you'd never guess it!) is RED!!! LOL! I hope she likes it! I love the way it turned out!

I added a little pocket just for good measure!
Would you guys like a little tutorial on how I make my tote bags? I've been wanting to write one up but I figured I'd ask to see if there is any interest first?!?

Here is another tote that I made for myself. I was thinking of doing the tutorial on this bag, showing you how I did the design and then how to put it all together. So whaddya think?

Here's the inside of mine! I love it!!! They are so simple and quick to make!!!!
Let me know what you think!!!!

I'm linking up with Amanda Jean for her Finish It Up Friday!

~Hope y'all are having a GREAT day!!!~
