Tote Bag

My sister has a new granddaughter.
The little one was actually born in May six weeks early
and has been in the NICU since her birth.
Recently she was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis.
The poor little thing has had three operations on her intestines
with more in her future.
She is finally gaining weight and has passed her birth weight,
but feeding continues to be a struggle.

If you are one to pray,
prayers would be appreciated.

Last week my sister asked if I could make a tote bag
for them to use to take the little one's clothes and things
back and forth to the hospital.

Tote bags I can do!

Out came some cute fabrics and my Go! Cutter
and the fun began.

She wanted the bag to be about the size of a plastic grocery bag.
No pockets or zippers...
Just a tote bag.

I couldn't just sew fabric into a tote bag...
it needed to be quilted!

This bug is checking out my quilting!

The bag has been delivered to my sister and has been put into use
carrying things back and forth to the hospital.

Hopefully the little one will be able to come home soon.

I'm linking to Small Quilts and Doll Quilts today.

Happy Quilting!
