I made this cute little tote bag as a gift for a birthday party my son went to. The birthday girl was turning four years old and I thought a "Little Red Riding Hood" bag would be a fun gift to give. I had a mini charm pack of "A Walk in the Woods" and I used it for both front and back patchwork panels for the bag. I used the needle turn applique method to put the heart on the front and then I outlined the heart with an embroidery stitch.
I used some batting scraps to give the bag some body and structure - I enjoyed not having to deal with interfacing.
I only had one mini charm pack square left at the end of this project- it used most of them up quite efficiently.
I used stash fabrics to complete the bag. It was a little more "grown up" present then I would've liked- I think my error was in making it too big. Oh well. Overall, I was happy with how it came out and I would make one again for sure!
