A tale of Three Totes

As I looked around my house, I realized that my knitting and crochet projects were taking over!  They seem to be reproducing at a remarkable rate - yet none were completed!  How does that happen?  Anyway - I decided it was time to start making project totes to reign in the chaos!

Here is the First of three I made:

Bag Front

 You may notice that some of the flowers are double. I cut them out of a floral fabric, used my fave no fray spray and added them to create a three dimension look.

Bag Back

 This is a close up of the front flower.  I added tiny petersham to the center of the flower and a little dream pin.

Close up of the inside.  

I used clear plastic from Jo Ann's, made bias tape to cover the top and sides to create a pocket that  holds notions. 

Close up of the side. 
This 'flower' is a hard plastic button.

Close up of the top trim and beads.  The trim is vintage and so are the beads.

Happy Sewing,

  1. Hi! I popped over after you left a comment on my photobooth at Aprons & Ambitions. I am in LOVE with this yellow tote. Were the flowers cut out of a piece of patterned fabric? Or did you put the black lines around the petals? It's so cute!!

  2. hi Amy-
    The flowers were cut out of the patterned fabric so the black line were on the fabric. I bet you could add them to a fabric if they were not on it with a sharpe.
    Thank you for the comment.
