2015 RSC July Red Week 1 and Two "Super Females" Reversable Tote Bags
I love RED. This RSC month is going to be fun. I'll add one 12.5" block and three 8.5" blocks to my collections. I'll post some mid-year progress pictures next week. To see what others made with their red scraps go here.
Three nieces are visiting us a few weeks this summer. Two of them like to sew and they each made reversible tote bags. Pictured is the tote made by the youngest girl. The DC super hero print, Super Girl, Bat Woman and Wonder Women, and the patriotic lining fabric came from Walmart. We used two pieces of outer fabric cut 13.5" x 12", two pieces of lining fabric cut 13.5" x 12", two pieces of fusible fleece cut 13.5" x 12", two pieces of fabric for the handles cut 22" x 4" and two pieces of fleece cut 1" x 22" to go inside the handles. 1.5" squares cut from the bottom corners of the outer fabric, lining fabric and the fleece gave the bags square bottoms.
The girls did a great job! Careful cutting, consistent seam widths. They did all the sewing and the cutting after I showed them how to use the rotary cutter and healing mat. I'm very proud of the girls and their reversible tote bags. Next time we'll add pockets!
