Delta Jct., Alas...
After finishing off a few projects I was left with some decent sized fabrics scraps. I didn’t want to throw them away as they were too pretty to do so. So I decided to create a tote bag. I didn’t follow any patterns or tutorials and just though I’d go with the flow of things. Creating it as I go along. There is a one print panel that goes around the bags top, I also matched the handles in the same fabric to balance off the look. A big pocket with a round bottom and cornered edges is placed in the middle. The pocket has a floral printed panel that is hand stitched through with embroidery floss and gathered to create ruffles. The tote bag is finished off with top stitching and my Hashemesh tag.
The yellow printed berries fabric is 100% cotton. While the colorful floral printed fabric is 100% cotton sheeting. The tote bag is fully lined in white 100% cotton muslin.
