Smitten Kitten Totebag – Finished!

IColorful Cats Totebag‘ve been eying the cat blocks that Elizabeth Hartman has been doing on her blog since she started the quilt along, but wasn’t sure that I wanted to commit to a wall quilt of cat heads in my house.Β  Once I asked if Good Mews needed any more prizes for their Catsino Night fundraiser, and got an affirmative answer, inspiration struck and I thought they would be purr-fect for a totebag (tip your waitresses!).

I made a total of 18 blocks for the two sides in a mix of polka dot prints.Β  I used some of my lime houndstooth from my Super Bolt mega-purchase, and a fat quarter of random cat fabric I’ve gotten from somewhere for an interior zipper pocket.

Colorful Cats TotebagTo jazz it up a bit, I also made a zipper pouch to coordinate using the Open Wide pouch tutorial from Noodle-head.

Although I don’t have pictures, I can verify that the totebag will fit one (1) fourteen pound cat.

  1. Awesome tote, but I gotta say it:

    Pics or it didn’t happen! πŸ˜‰

    P.S. No reply necessary!

  2. that looks great. I have yet to conquer my fear of zippers. I mean it. I have put in a few many years ago but its been so long and I’m like… yeah no… I did stretch sewing for a reason… One day maybe… but in the meantime I will admire other people’s creations

  3. I was taken with this pattern too. My son LOVES cats so I will be making him a wallhanging soon. He tried to angle for me making a full quilt, but I just made him one last year, and I will make one for my husband and I before I consider #2 for him!
