We Love Moms :: Big Bucket Tote


We’re just two days away, but there’s still time! This fabulous Big Bucket Tote by Jennifer Mathis of Ellison Lane Quilts is made of up colorful jelly roll strips, making it a relatively quick sew. The bag is BIG and sometimes you just need that extra space. Whether you’re toting a quilt and assorted picnic items, your workout gear, or you’re packing for a weekend away, this is the bag for you (and your mom!) This is one of our new favorites and we hope you love it too!
