Grocery Tote

Hello, hello!
I did finish the July BOM, but I won't post it until I have the June BOM done. Not bad, I'm just one block behind. I need to JUST DO IT! Maybe tomorrow. I just get a little side Talk about side track.....yesterday I was organizing some patterns and found a pattern that was on my "to do list" and decided to just do it.....I did. I found some cat fabric just sitting granddaughter isn't a fabric cat lover any more, so I have lots of cat fabric. I picked out MY favorite one. Cute HUH? Well, there is one problem with it though........ I found out the hard way that you don't use directional fabric.....nope, nope, nope, unless you want to cut it differently and waste (not necessarily waste...goes in container for a scrap quilt;-)), I CUT THE MATERIAL.....looked at it....discovered the "opps" I thought about it for a while and said "What the heck?" Who will notice? hee hee. ( ME ) Notice the blue "mice" are directional too:-) The bag to the right is the "cat" bag I made for my granddaughter years ago. I love that pattern from Lazy Girl Designs. It has 6 outside pockets. Only problem is I keep forgetting what pocket I put what biggie,. When in doubt, just check all six. lol

Opps, I got side tracked again;-) I'm sure that doesn't happen to anyone I got the super easy Grocery tote at click on the link on the left side. This is my kind of pattern. It has written instructions on the front and on the back PICTURES. I found myself flipping back and forth to put a visual with the words. Now I need to whip out a few more. Then I have to remember to bring them with me when I go shopping. That is the hard part.

Have a GREAT DAY and make yourself a few grocery totes........but don't forget to use them;-)
