Again with the Hudson pants! I know I know. But when I find a pattern I love, I tend to beat it into the ground. And when I found this awesome fabric at the Girl Charlee booth at Quiltcon, it was screaming out to become yet another pair of Hudson's.
Ebony Tee too...

My friend Stephanie made an amazing Japanese knock off tote bag to use at Quiltcon. I really loved it! She shared that it is a free tutorial from Sew Can She & I knew I would put it toward the top of my list of things to make after I got home. Because I clearly need more tote bags.
I also love the squirrel print. I got it in New York City last fall & had been saving it for just the right project.
I love that the bag is reversible! The patchwork "lining is really fun.

If you've been to Quiltcon before, you already know that you can come home with a huge stack of free tote bags! I had no idea.... live and learn! A few of the ones I ended up with are really great quality. Like the free bag we got with registration, designed by Violet Craft!
I also got one of Cotton & Steel's amazing bags, so I decided to set to work making it even more amazing....
My buddy (and Quiltcon roomie) Diann had the great idea to add hand stitching.... I added three rows of running stitch around the top of the bag in colors that matched the printing on the front. Oh, and I used 1/4" tiger tape to make it all nice and even. If you don't know about tiger tape, you need to! It's magical. You can get it here.
Again with the pockets..... this time I used all C&S fabrics and I made the slip pockets a bit deeper...
