An Easter Bunny Tote Bag

A friend sent my daughter and me really cute wall hangings made from a towel and washcloth.

We wanted to make something for her and collaborated on a large tote bag.  My daughter did her great embroidery on an 8 inch center panel …

…and I used my favorite quilt block to frame a picture – 4-½ inch log cabin blocks (1-½ inch center and 1 inch strips).

I used the same pretty pink calico in the blocks and for the backing and lining.

Pale green check seems to go with pink so well and serves as an accent on the bag.

This is a roomy 16 x 20 inch tote and I hope will be used to transport a lot of good stuff.

  1. Your bag is so cute. I love Log Cabin blocks and these frame your stitchery so well. The bunny rabbit towels are so cute too. Happy Easter to you and your family. I hope the Easter bunny is good to you and fills your bad up with lots of goodies!

  3. All of them are absolutely adorable. I love the embroidery surrounded by those little log cabins. Great job by everyone. Happy Easter!

  4. Very sweet towels and tote. Hope you have a nice Easter holiday. Take care of yourself. How’s the new puppy

    1. Thank you for the nice comments. Our little beagle, Addie, is doing fine. She just started a training program at Petsmart, not because she is a problem for us, but because she has some hangups when she is around other people. It’s just as well we don’t have any men living here because she’s terrified of them.

      Have a great Easter. Lillian

  5. The Easter bag is darling! What a nice idea and great way to use log cabin blocks! It could be adapted to many occasions, too. The towel rabbits are darling.

  6. Such a perfect tote for spring, maybe the Easter Bunny will fill it with with eggs and candy, you never know. Your friend will love it, especially when she knows it’s handwork from both of you.

  7. I can’t tell you how much I love this tote! Knowing that you and Nancy worked your magic making it for me, means the world! I can’t wait to show it off! ❤

    1. Happy Easter to you, your husband and your gorgeous cat. I think I have to review my feeds – I haven’t been seeing your blogs lately. Lillian
