Beautiful fabric totes!

I fell in love with the quilting section of my local fabric shop not long ago. So many beautiful fabrics…! But quilting isn’t really my thing, so i decided to make some of the fabrics I loved the most into tote bags instead. I couldn’t find a pattern I really loved so i drafted my own (with a little help from my mum who is a brilliant seamstress). They are the perfect size for school books, a trip to the beach, a shopping day… anything really. Although I must admit choosing the fabric was the best part about them!
I made so many, though, that I can’t possibly use them all enough, but I’m sure they will make perfect gifts =)

    They look fab. I almost did the same thing: finally allowed myself to buy some Amy Butler fabric to sew a tote for my friend’s birthday… it is still waiting to be made though. I hope I will make it on time. Love the fabrics you chose!
