I’ve been inspired again! I’m coming out of crafting retirement!
As much as I love designer handbags, I also enjoy a fun and funky summer bag.
Here is a cotton twill tote that I whipped up this weekend. I looked at a few images and then designed my own pattern from there. It is completely lined with pockets for my blackberry and other junk.
It took less than a day to complete. Maybe 4 hours?
The fabric is called “Forest Dream Poppies” from Amy Butler’s August Fields collection. I bought half a meter of the Amy Butler fabric but definitely didn’t need that much. I have left overs and can make another smaller tote.
