Quick Holiday Gift

Recently a good friend of my little sister was diagnosed with leukemia and it has been a whirlwind for this family. They are throwing a fundraiser for the family in a couple of weeks, bad timing, but when did Cancer ever cared about anyone else!!!

So I ran across a pattern/tutorial, two actually, for a quilted wine tote and I really wanted to try making one of these, so I did.

These patterns are very similar, yet very different and mine are not exactly like either one of them.

I used festive holiday fabrics – basically 2 fat quarters each, gives you enough for the binding also, if you watch your cutting. I made these in a little over an hour each, I am sure the more you make these the quicker you could make them. If you really wanted to kick these out quickly, you could use pre-quilted material or forgo the quilting and just use a heavy canvas/denim material. Hmmm…denim

So I gave these two “totes” with a gift certificate to a local liquor store so that the auction winner can select out their own holiday spirits.
