    Check out this charm pack

    I like it! Only thing . . . it is a 4" pack . I am thinking maybe what I should do is sew them to a larger square, centered so the tote will be larger. You think that'll work?
    Thanks.

    Pretty with the lime green and black. I think sashed with white on each is a good way to highlight each square. Should be great

        Thanks gals. Two spoke up with over 200 views . . . what's up with that? Anywho . . . that's exactly what I have in mind, SallyO'Sews.

        A medium sized tote to take on my sojourn to meet my upcoming new granny. Since I will be traveling Greyhound [] I am opting for a zippered bag to keep my 'puter, quilting, and crochet in while riding along. In my big head I was thinking of somehow making the 4" charms larger with denim as it is hefty.

          Nothing personal but the low comments and large viewing might have something to do with the picture being so small that some of us can't make it out. Hard to comment on what we can't see.
          Since you're always on my mind can you straighten out the mess up there?

            You know how some photos, when you see them they can be enlarged to see better, but you can't right-click 'em? That's what this one is like at the eBay auction that I purchased it. I was disappointed that I couldn't share a nicer view 'cause that baby is cute. I'm going to try again, Leah53.

            ETA: Got 'em, yay! Also sharing the other pack I won.

              When you run across a picture like that, while you have it on your screen in enlarged view, click the PRINT SCREEN button on your keyboard. Then go into the PAINT program, right click in the white area and PASTE. You will paste an image of everything on your desktop. Crop out the image of the charm pack, paste it on a new paint page, save as jpg, name it and then you have a larger image to post.

                Wish I had a white denim (whining) on hand versus the indigo. Got it in my head that denim is sturdy and will do the trip well.

                      Don't feel bad about low comments. I just saw it and it's only noontime where I am. That green and black is beautiful. Will you show us the finished bag, please.

                        Yes, especially here. Definitely many indigo (like I have) jeans in second hand stores. Thinking of the size bag that I want and the time left to do it all would be interesting to find that much white denim.

                        More than likely I'll either go with indigo denim OR I could use white muslin that I have. It's just that muslin obviously isn't as strong as the denim. Hmmm, looks like my choice will be cuteness or functionality?

                          Thanks for enlarging it, now that I can see it the colors are beautiful especially the green and black, love those colors together.
