As the co-chair of our annual PTL Dinner Auction fundraiser, the fall is a whirlwind frenzy couple of months as we prepare for a wonderful night of fellowship, food, and fun.  We raised a lot of money for our kids thanks to the endeavors of 13 fantastic ladies who have true servant hearts.  As a thank you for all the months of organizing to put on this fundraiser I just finished a mini sewing marathon making 13 thank you tote bags for all the dedicated, talented ladies on my auction committee.  God blessed our evening and we give Him all the glory for the success. 

I just love sewing up gifts from my favorite fabrics. Each creation I make I think I just love this and want to keep it for myself.  Each bag has a pocket, snap closure, and key leash.  It took 2 bolts of heavy interface for these.  My mother always says the best gifts are the ones you love the most.  I used several of my favorite Amy Butler fabrics~ and almost every bag I wanted to keep for myself!

The pile of bags....
Just of few of the ladies at our wrap up party...


And then a couple I made for the silent auction... This is my go to pattern for a multipurpose bag~ the Ann Marie Horner Multi-Tasker Tote.  It is the perfect medium size with four external deep pockets, internal zipper pocket, key leash, and snap closure.
