Lucky you!

It's official! Lucky blog readers, there will be more Tremendous Totes soon!

I went to the crazy quilt shop yesterday and am now the proud owner of what may be some of the last of this fabric:

Here's the deal. I have enough material to make 5 (maybe 6) of these bags. That's it. No mas. Eeek!

I'm currently cranking away on these bags, but I'm just one person and I do have a day job, so please be patient with me.

I will post here before I list the bag for sale in my etsy shop Halcyon Green so you'll have a chance to prepare for that. I'll keep you posted on cost and shipping once I figure that out. One thing at a time, people!

But wait, there's more!

I also scored this loveliness, and I'm super excited about it:Yes! Another colorway! The same AB print in a pink and green version. I'll be making the same bag in this as well, with green faux suede accent/straps (on the left of the pic) and pink piping/binding (a little bit is peaking out on the right of the pic).

Not wanting to get too crazy, I only have enough material to make 2 (maybe 3) of these bags. So, friends, please keep chatting up the comments so I stay motivated to sew and not worry that all my family will be getting the same bag for Christmas this year!


  1. Oh I'm sure you will sell a ton of them...don't worry about that. Just make sure you keep the original for yourself!!

  2. We definitely need to know when they are for sale. I love them - both colorways! Congrats on your win, and keep us posted about the birth of more tremendous totes!

  3. Thanks! The totes are coming along, slowly but surely. I'll make sure to keep you all posted. I've got some other things up my sleeve as well, so be on the lookout for that! :)

  4. Uh! Now I don't know know which colorway I want!
    I'll just wait and see. I guess it will depend on how fast they sell. ;o)
