One of the things we really love about our new book, Constellations: 12 Pieced Astrological Blocks, 8 Personalized Sewing Projects, is that it is not just for quilters. There are a variety of additional sewing projects that use just one or two of the pieced blocks and are perfect for those who love our astrological blocks but are not committed to piecing, quilting and binding a whole quilt. We especially love the Star Sign Tote for all you non-quilters out there.
This stylish tote is made with just one pieced astrological block of your choice, a study waxed canvas bottom and a one set of our leather handles. Made up in a durable mid-weight linen fabric, this tote can stand up to everyday use.
The oversized Star Sign Tote tote finishes at a hefty 19” x 19” x 6” size. Certainly large enough to carry anything you might need throughout your day. Plus, the hard-lined insert in the bottom of the tote helps retain its boxy shape, no matter how much you fill it up.
The three large exterior pockets are great for keeping your most used items easy to find. They easily fit a phone or small tablet, keys and your day planner. No need to scramble every time your phone rings.
Don’t forget you can customize your tote, too! Make one for you and your best friend with each other's astrological signs on them. Sew up one for your mom with your Dad’s astrological sign on it. Or use our new Orion quilt block, perfect for all the mighty hunters in your life.
We hope all you garment and bag makers out there will dip your toe in the celestial water and make one of our new astrological sewing projects. You won’t be disappointed.
