2/23 update: I'm linking to the OMG February Finish page here
My One Monthly Goal for February was to make two totebags. I'm pleased to say that I finished both by February 4!
They will be filled with advance reader copies (books I shipped back from ALA Midwinter). They will be raffled at the Lake County Women's Coalition brunch on March 4, the annual Women's History Month celebration.
The bag on the left uses an orphan block (Eddystone Light) and a swirly print by Paula Nadelstern that I've had for a long time. The bag on the right is adapted from a totebag I saw in a catalog. I used Bo-Sal In R Form .* It's a lot like the car head liner that I used in the daisy totebags last year. The firm-yet-flexible foam allows the totes to stand up.
I'll link up with OMG at the end of February.
Meanwhile, here are the Monday link parties:
Main Crush Monday
Design Wall Monday
* When we lived in Maine I made several shopping trips to the Bo-Sal outlet which was in Scarborough (or Saco?) in those days. They had rolls and rolls of high-end upholstery/home dec fabric. I bought a ginormous bag of fiberfill that I used for pillow stuffing. I hauled that slowly-diminishing bag from Maine to North Dakota to Illinois (two houses) and finally used it up in 2010.
