As I was glancing through a magazine last week I came upon a pretty tote bag which I thought I might make as I had very similar fabric in my stash and I liked it just as it was. You can be sure that if I changed the colour or fabric then I probaby wouldn´t like the end result.
I started out sewing the pocket, adding lace, ribbon trim, buttons and a small applique heart to the beige linen fabric. The magazine didn´t mention lining the pocket but I did, with the same linen.
I also made the bag a shade smaller and lined it with a flowery fabric which in the end I had to buy because what I had chosen from my stash wasn´t large enough even with my change to the measurements.
By the way, if anyone remembers The Perfectly Pleasing Pincushion Parade linky party and would like Ida to continue this year, please let her know at mysismademe. blogspot.
Until next week.
