February - Tick!

 I have finished this months project... Natalie Birds True Friends Tote Bag.
I'm so pleased with the way it turned out.
 I bought the fabrics, 4 fat quarters, and the tape when I was in Melbourne in January from a wonderful shop called L"uccellos. I really wanted to use it for this bag, so I had a little bit of adjusting to do but managed to use the fabric with no wastage at all.
I am really happy with it and it's such a great sized bag!
I love seeing how different everyone's bags look with the variety of colours and fabrics used.
Great project!
