A Tote from Scraps

I am always looking for ways to use scraps of material from quilts I have made. While I was browsing the fabrics in my favorite quilt store I found this interesting tote pattern. It is from "Kimie's Quilts" and is a Country Tote. The pattern calls for 2 1/2 by 3 1/2 squares which works out well using my scrap stash. I have a hard time throwing any fabric away so the remnants are squirreled away in boxes, which were put to use in sewing this tote. I also collect buttons from jackets, shirts, dresses before they are recycled. These came in handy for this tote. I think it is even more interesting when they don't match. Love it when projects come from items on hand.
