I fell in love with this pattern right away and knew I had to make something for my sister, who happens to have two dogs that look just like this pattern. 
So the question was what....

The Poolside Tote by Noodlehead was the answer. 
(follow the links to find out about purchasing the pattern) 
A totally cute way to display a few Dog blocks.

I think the hardest part of this pattern was deciding which of the cute versions to pick!!

I chose to make 2 pockets for the tote, which only features one, but I think the more pockets the better!!

My only mistake, was forgetting that the bottom of the bag pattern is notched to get the width for the tote. I should have adjusted and put the dog block up higher, because when the tote is sitting the dog looks like he is peeking at you. Lol! just an FYI incase you decide to give this a try!!

And what bag is complete without a matching sunglass case!!

And because I couldn't stop at just one project......

I made this cute little version of the block as a gift for Lorna, whom I met for the first time just after Thanksgiving....over coffee at Tim Horton's. Perfect gift to hold her hot latte. What a great couple of hours we spent chatting about quilting!!

Thanks everyone for stopping by, don't forget to check out the rest of todays participants!!
