Fox and Gnome Tote Bag

Have you seen this???

Fox and Gnome Tote Bag pattern by Artisania
This is my awesome..I-should-be-in-bed-but-I-am-still-up-surfing-quilt-blogs-at-12 a.m. find from last night. I was surfing through the list of blogs (posted at Felicity Quilts) from the Canadian Blogathon being put on by Sew Sisters and I came across this super awesome pattern designed by Artisania. I have been itching to make a bag to carry all my quilting books/sketch book to and from everywhere and voila this is THE one.

 Here are my fabric choices...

Have I mentioned that I love, adore and pine after toile?!!! It's true, I totally do.

Now to learn how to paper piece! Pretty excited!

Happy Thanksgiving to those popping in from the U.S.



  1. OMG that is the most cutest bag ever! Hurry up and make it Lisa. Can't wait to see it. I think I need one too so let me know how that paper piecing goes

  2. I'm a big toile fan too! Sonja is a very talented designer and member of the VMQG - It's a hike for you but you should come out to our meetings sometime!

  3. It is a beautiful and super cute tote pattern. How exciting to try paper piecing for the first time... I have yet to give it a try. I'm looking forward to your creation. Happy sewing.

  4. So cute!!! I want to try this ;)

  5. why yes, that looks like it will be lovely! great fabric pulls, look forward to seeing your version!

  6. Now that gnome is adorable. I officially want to put it on everything. A quilt with some "hidden" gnomes? Yes please!
