DIY Tote Bag and Patch

I made this bag from a pattern in the Stitch’N Bitch book. It is a great tote to store knitting projects you are working on. I chose a light green fabric with a yellow bee pattern for the bag. I found another fabric that had a picture of a bear in different sceneries in square blocks. I think the fabric was for making pillows or something. Anyway I chose this fabric to make my patch for the front of my bag. The patch is a bear sitting with a bee hive scooping out some honey. The bear has a little book sticking out of his pocket titled Guide to Insects.

It came out just how I pictured it. It was not hard and it did not take long to make. I made it from start to finish in one afternoon.

Wow, that bag looks amazing! I never thought to use another fabric with a picture already on it. Very, very nice!
