I used some natural Canvas to coordinate. This tote is really big. Just perfect for someone to use for a knitting project, yoga or gym class, library bag, shopping bag, beach or pool bag, a night over bag or you name it. Look at that wide gusset. And the pleat looks so cute.
There's a very spacious front pocket. I made a faux piping effect on the top of it.
I felt the urge ( you know what I mean, right?) to buy some fabrics the other day and I got some 1/2 yard cuts from Hawthorne Threads. They shipped very fast and have a very large and nice inventory. They are: Tribal Blanket in Sunset from Wild Horses Collection (Michel Miller), Bottlecap in Multi from Eclectic Elements 2 by Tim Holtz, Destination in Navy from Detour Collection by Bo Bunny ( I just love this one) and Sneakers in Black from Geekly Chic Returns by Amy Adams. I still have a nice stash from my purchases while in the US last April/May visit. So I'm trying not to buy too much. Wishful thinking?!
