Simply Charming Twister Tote

Hello Bag Lovers & Twister Quilt aficionados. Now that Christmas is over I can share a custom bag order that I made using the Lil' Twister Tool from Around the Bobbin and the Simply Charming Twister Tote pattern that is also from Around the Bobbin too.

A good repeat customer who loves my work (it's so nice to hear that from people who buy bags from me, especially when they buy more than once) asked me to make this tote for her daughter for Christmas and told me to choose any color. I love to choose fabric colors and I chose to use a variety of batik fabrics to make this bag. 

I added the hardware D-rings and rivets and purse feet too that were not part of the pattern. I also quilted the entire bag instead of just the Twister part. I think it looks better that way. I love how it turned out!

The back of the bag has a few different batik colors of the Twister Pinwheels.

Variegated colored thread for the quilting.

Has to have a Handmade label. Limited Edition is right! It is limited to just this one bag as I won't repeat it in the same fabrics ever again. One of a kind bag for sure!

The tote closes with a magnetic snap closure and the tote can open really wide.

I added a zipper pocket inside too.

I added a large slip pocket that I divided in half with a narrow pen pocket at each end.

I love Twister blocks! They make for great bags and quilts. Linda, I hope your daughter loved this tote!

    It would be impossible not to love this tote. It looks so great. You sew beautifully, Daryl, so I’m not surprised you have repeat customers. The twister design is so fun to create with. I’m working on a twister project myself. I had a single charm pack to use. Now I’m working on inspiration where to go from here with it.

  2. first of all I love those twister blocks, what a great idea to incorporate them into a bag. love the new tag because it is an original and one of a kind. great job as always.

  3. This is such a beautiful tote, Daryl! I love the twister blocks in the bag!

  4. And, thanks for linking up with Monday Musings!!
