and this is what it became a couple of hours later...I wanted a big tote to fit a quilt in progress.

Great tote! You gals in Australia always amaze me with your Op Shop purchases and your inventiveness! I never seem to find anything "good" at the thrift stores, but maybe I need to try harder!

The IKEA store in Perth has recently relocated and is now selling a good range of fabric (mainly furnishing weight) and is all 100% cotton and well priced. Sarah's Oven Mitts are only available in childrens sizes as this is where she saw a need a in the market. Have a great weekend, Lisa
