Light Tote for neighborhood shopping

New York, New Yo...






I sewed this bag with IKEA fabric, imitating the shape of my another favorite bag. I just happened to make a ribbon when I was playing with a waste piece of cutting fabric. So I attached it on the bag, but I was torn between putting it on the center ( as pictures ) and on the top of the strap. I’m still wondering which is better, or removing it is the best..

      Thank you so much. I’m happy to hear both of you two like the bow on the front.

      Also, hooo.. it’s called “bow”…, I learned a new word here:) I’m not a native English speaker, so it’s also fun to see others’ comment in this site.

      If you don’t mind me asking…what is an “atelier”? I am thinking it is a sewing room? Glad you learned a new word, always fun to learn new things.

      I should have used the word “studio”. I think the word “atelier” is originally from French, and we use it in Japan to mean a working space for something creative. Am I clear :) ? Thank you for letting me know the word is not common here! Communicating with a native speaker like you is the best way to learn English !
