Teresa is the lady behind the Green Bag Lady project that I volunteer for. Here is the link to her blog:

So after a year of procrastinating I finally tested the pattern and made Teresa a quilted tote for Christmas:
The paper pieced block turned out well for a prototype but I wouldn't make one this small again it is a little tricky around the hair!
I finally used some of my EPP hexagons to make a stripe across the back of the bag so it wasn't just boring plain green.
|I added a pocket|
And making a gift bag for a bag seemed pointless, so I just made some home made ribbon (i didn't have any green ribbon in my stash).
The ribbon is a 2.5" strip folded like bias binding and stitched along one edge to secure:
It feels good to have an old WIP finished!
