FO: Hostess Tote Bag Gifts

Three 40-minute totes for three wonderful ladies

Three 40-minute totes for three wonderful ladies

My sweet mother-in-law and her friends threw me a wedding shower a few weeks ago but I had been so preoccupied with Amanda’s Bridal Shower that I completely forgot to get hostess gifts. 😦

For my birthday, Z gifted me his mother’s old sewing machine but I have been too busy, too afraid, and lacking the proper space to actually use it.  Around the time of the shower, Z got rid of a television which gave me the much-needed space for sewing projects.  I have wanted to make the 40 Minute Tote from Purl Bee ever since I saw the adorable bags.  Insert a few yards of fabric and a desire to make something wonderful for the wonderful & caring ladies that have welcomed me into their hearts.

Reversible too!
