It is indeed that time of year again. Actually, I’m late. This should have been done months ago considering I had decided that I was only going to make one set of circles. I feel bad about that actually. But…things are such on my life that I can’t take on more projects. Sugh.
I’ll post what this set of circles became next week after the recipient has actually received it.

It looks like I’ve already finished the tote bag doesn’t it?  Then why am I only showing you a preview instead of doing a full post?  Well, partly because I’m short on time and also because this is the craft for tonight.  Yes.  Tonight.  You might wonder about my hesitancy about posting photos of things before the recipient receives the thing in question, but in this case, there isn’t really a recipient.  Most of the girls have already seen the project sample.  I did that to entice them to come.  Muahahahahhaha!

So anyway, you get a preview because I also wanted to show you what the rest of the girls come up with.  And get better pictures of the tote and possibly some of the steps to make it.  I was in a huge hurry when I made this thing.

I will let you know that my finished bag is about 8″x11″x3″ and it took me about six hours to complete.  At least half of that time was trying to figure out which scraps I wanted to use and then cutting them to size and then arranging them to my satisfaction and also lots of ironing.  All that and it still didn’t use up nearly as much scrap cloth as I was hoping it would.  So, now I’m hoping the rest of the girls will make a sizable dent in my scrap pile when they make their bags.
