Over the weekend I finished the second project using a block from The Crooked House Banner. I’m not sure pictures do this justice, but I LOVE IT! This is so me. Green and red are my favorite colors and this tote has such a rich, warm feel to it. Often when I make something, I give it away. Not this puppy! I’ll tuck my latest take-along project in it, and when not in use, I’ll hang it on a hook in my family room for decoration.
Just like last week’s pillow, you can use any complete 12 1/2″ square in the center of the tote bag. Today, I’m including the directions for making The Crooked Bush House Block. Since the assembly is virtually the same as The Crooked Vine House Block, I’ve referenced those directions and just included the changes in these directions. Later in the week I’ll provide instructions for making the tote bag. In the mean time, I’m including some close ups of some the the bag’s detail. If you’re interested in making the bag, start with the center block. The directions are available in the FREE Open Pattern section. Enjoy!
EDIT: With a number of other projects in the works, I haven’t gotten around to writing up the directions for the tote bag yet. I EVENTUALLY will. Sorry if you’re waiting on them!
