Venti Bag

It sure seems that summer is in full swing here in the USA anyway. Blog land is sure quiet. Everyone must be out enjoying the sunshine.

I've been working of some future blog hop projects. Scary, that I am that far ahead of the game for once.  LOL!!  

Last week at our local sewing expo, I found a delightful pattern for a tote. Now, I am one with about a gazillion tote bags, so I usually don't even see patterns for them anymore, but this pattern for the Venti Tote Bag jumped out at me. Not only did I buy it, but I ran right home and stitched it up!  All in the same day. Now that's a record for me! 

 
It's huge and my mind started racing, over all the things I could put in it.
:-)
 
 
The bottom is a whopping 23" wide.
 
You know how big the seat of a chair is... and as big as my seat is, I just knew it would hold a LOT!!  LOL!
 
 
Being 20" high, it's a perfect bag for knitting, or fabric scraps, a beach bag...
Gheez, the ideas are endless.
 
This pattern is from Purse Strings.
You can find a link to it right HERE.
 
Actually, I was thinking it would be great in the trunk of a car to keep all your stuff organized, but it's too big for my car's trunk. If I only had that mini van yet, it would have been perfect!
