This home decorator weight oversized tote bag is made from a richly textured fabric.

This bag is great for fall because you can:

- carry all your equipment and "stuff" that you need to run to all those sporting events.
- carry a quilt in style to a picnic.
- Fill it with spare sweatshirts and windbreakers and leave it in your car so you're prepared for a change in the weather.
- Stuff a sleeping bag and pillow in for a sleepover.
- Stuff it with last-minute clothes and gear as your child heads off to college.

With so many possibilities, you will enjoy this pretty, yet practical tote.

The seams on this durable tote are double-stitched for strength. It is 25" wide and 23" long, with a 9" boxed bottom. The handles are 30" long.

The last photo shows how the bag can be easily folded.

The photos in this listing show a twin-sized quilt in the bag. For examples of the scale of my oversized tote bags, see the following:

Frequently asked questions about MaidenJane

I can make a quilt blanket in a relatively short period of time. However, the turnaround time depends on the number of items in my custom sewing queue. It is best to plan as far as possible in advance, especially if you are considering giving one as a gift in December(holidays) or May (graduations). You can request a rush order. If I can accommodate you, there will be a $25 additional charge.
The blankets are machine washable. Machine was cool and tumble dry low. If you would like to press the top of the quilt, press gently using a press cloth or handkerchief so that you do not melt the T Shirt motifs.
No. A traditional quilt is made of three layers: the top, a middle layer of batting and a cotton bottom. The batting can shift and bunch so the quilt has to be stitched or “quilted” through the three layers. Maiden Jane blankets have two layers: the top and a cozy fleece bottom. There is no need for batting. The blankets are top-stitched and tacked down to keep the layers stable. The fleece provides a cozy and comfortable backing that is not as stiff as a traditional quilt. I can make a traditional quilt but the cost and time involved increases significantly.
I have made these quilts for over ten years. My customers testify that they are quite durable. My own children have used their blankets at college as throws and picnic blankets. They wash up very nicely. Will they be heirlooms in 100 years? I don’t know! But they are surely a “practical and pretty” way to get T Shirts out of your closet and drawers!
I use interfacing on shirts that are extremely worn or have holes in them. I also use them in the blankets that are sewn to cotton fabrics. This is mainly for ease of construction.
Yes! If the sizing is right, I can often take two shirts and combine them into one block.
Varsity jacket, sheets, blankets, shorts, button-down shirts, jeans, jerseys, uniforms, varsity letters, vintage quilts.
You can leave fabric selection up to me or we can work together to make the selections. Sometimes customers will specify a color they would like or think would work well. Many times they leave the choices to me. You can always look through examples of my other blankets to get ideas.
