Totin' My Own Horn for Rednesday!

What could be better for carrying all your stuff around in then a sweet vintage fabric tote?

How about two totes?
This is the front of  bag #1.
These are just so stinkin' cheery!  

I love how she put these fabrics together.  She has a great eye!
This is the back of bag #1.

Here's the front of bag #2.
(The back is mostly pink so I didn't share it today.)

Perfect for carrying magazines and those all important reading glasses.  
(These are called Weedin' Glasses - more stinkin' cuteness!)

I purchased these from Cherished Vintage when she was selling on ebay.  I've also noticed that the sweet Amy over at Into Vintage has one of these up for sale in her etsy shop.  

Hope you enjoyed these splashes of red!
Somehow red always seems to cheer me up, how about you?

Want some more cheer?  
Then head on over to It's a Very Cherry World and see what Sue has put together for us all!

Please stop by and leave a comment if you would like to enter my giveaway!
And thank you so much for buzzin' in!  Such a delight to see you!

P.S.  And yes, I do believe a horn would fit in one of these totes!

  9. I thought of Amy as soon as I saw these bags, and I just knew that she had made them! How cute, and you must get compliments all day when you're totin' them around!
    Happy REDnesday!

  10. Ooh, these are adorable. I love them. I have an old red plaid one for my books and glasses and have been meaning to get a new one. These are perfect.

    Thanks for stopping by my little corner and commenting on the pocket book test run. Happy Rednesday!

  11. Love those bags! I collect the linens they are made from but don't sew - great idea tho!

  12. Red is so cheerful! The totes are adorable with those great prints.
    And I came home one day to the old wallpaper and a few days later to the white cabinets now over it!
    So I'm glad I got the pictures..

  14. Great bags with such colorful fabric!

  15. Red always cheers me up. I have to tell you that I love your background images on your blog. So cute.

  16. Those 2 bags are so cute. They remind me of some of the ones I have made for gifts using leftovers from my quilting. The colors are really nicely chased and put together....very pleasing to the eye.

    Thanks for all of your visits to see me. I love reading your comments.

  18. Ohhh - what cute bags! I love them! I have quite a few vintage tablecloths but just can't seem to cut them up. I really should though - how cute is this! Hugs, Patti

  19. I think red is cheery too, funny 'cause a lot of people think of it as being irritating or angry. I love it with a mix of colors and patterns like your totes. So fun!

  20. Those bags are stinkin' cute!!

  21. Lovely materials and so nicely matched. Yes, such bags are great fun to use.
    I love your creativity: blogthday, for instance. I always laugh when I read your blog!
    Have a colourful day!

  22. Oh I love them! So colorful and cute.

  23. I love these! I have picked up a few "cutter" tablecloths at garage sales but so far I just can't make myself cut into them! Some day:>)

    Hugs to you!


  24. I love the fabric used for creating these one of a kind totes.. they are so pretty!.
    Have a sweet day,
    Hugs, Elizabeth
