Harwood Steiger Holiday Tote

Added Apr 21, 2012

Denver, Colorado...






Another weekender tote using Amy Bulter’s pattern. The fabric is a vintage Hardwood Steiger silk screen print. I made a couple alterations to the original pattern to include piping to the side pockets and bringing the main pocket pannel height down a bit to be in line with the side pocket panels. Also included a Harwood Steiger tag to the side of the bag in tribute to the artist.

Material Notes

Harwood Steiger print on cotton, linen, upholstery piping




Garment Type
Cotton, Linen

      I used a petlex stabilizer for the side panels and bottom per the pattern instructions. It’s what make the bag stand on it’s own.
