You might recall from before, I promised something new and fabulous from the green/blue floral and blue pin dot. Well, here is my brand new professional tote!
Isn’t it gorgeous?! I’m very pleased with it. The pattern is from the Creative Thimble and I can tell you it is one of the best written, clear and easy to follow patterns that I’ve ever used. The only thing that I changed for this bag was to use medium weight interfacing instead of the heavy weight called for. I made this tote in pink/grey for A-DIL-M for Christmas (someday I’ll have to snap a picture but sadly I don’t have one at the moment) and, although the bag was just as lovely, the heavy weight interfacing was extremely stiff.
The fabulousness continues inside, too!
The blue/green floral is Simply Color by V and Co. for Moda and the light blue pin dot is a basic quilt fabric that I found at our local Fabricland store. Since we’re on our way west for a visit next week, I will have a beautiful and stylish way to take along everything I need for the week (computer, eReader, snacks, etc. – clothes are less important and will have to travel in some other bag :)).
Next up – the last two “coming soon” items. The recycled t-shirt and the t-shirt quilt. Stay tuned!
