start of the girls sets

 
this is the pattern for the tote I got off the internet years ago. unfortunately I am not sure where.

 
but you use 12- 5 inch squares for the body, then a piece for the bottom, a small piece for the top to latch onto a button and then a lining........its quilted.........and simple......if you want a pocket for inside you can make with two 5 inch squares as well....
(I LOVE the fussy cut deer...........I am making both sides the same......)



 
this will be my lining..........

 
and this is the pattern for the "matching" Kleenex holder.....just two squares 6 1/2 by 7 inch. one color will be peeking out as a contrast.........use one for lining and one for face.......I am not sure yet which will be which but once I sew I will be better able to tell........
 
It took me a while to choose the fabrics that I wanted to use......and where I wanted to sew them.....
 
I will show you my progress as I make the set......
I am excited! I also have a Deer and a deer pillowcase in my stash so this will make a cute set.....
what do you think?
 
I just need to figure out the handles fabric.........but I have tons of all of them so will see as I go along......
 
the zippy bag I think I will do scrappy as well......only in strips instead of squares....
then will need to cut the eyeglass case, maybe a cell phone case? and a chapstick holder.
 
I am on a roll...........and I don't mean crayon roll anymore!
