The lovely receptionist at my office just retired and is off in search of adventure in her RV. She's an avid quilter and loves bright colors so I made her this simple, fun tote for her travels. I based the applique on this embroidery pattern. I love the design but I chose applique instead of embroidery to add dimension and incorporate some fun fabric scraps and trims from my stash.
Bon voyage, Pat. We'll miss you!
