My new Cotton linen tote bag. I have been stitching a lot for my Baltimore project lately, my hands just itched to touch my sewing machine. Having a good ideas of this tote bag in mind, with my newly arrived cotton weaved handle and ribbon, i decided I need to make 2 linen tote bags to fulfill my "needs" to make a product. Each time I visited Japan, I just fall for the concept of their tote bag, casual and chic and so light to carry around. I remembered my good friend carrying a heavy and bulky bag shopping with me last time, in the end, I needed to "share the burden" with her by carrying the bag for her. Though the bag is fashionable, I think it just doesn't worth the kind of "burden".
Just a little touch, good quality cotton grosgrain ribbon & beautiful cheerful pink inner fabric to make the entire bag looks so cute !
At first, i thought I want to use the same fabrics for the back and front of the bag but I found it so dull. Also, carrying big red polka dot bag can be very fashionable when properly designed (I think Marc Jacob has a bag like that). Why not make the front and back of the bag useful ? So here we are...
I just uploaded the 2 of my bags for sell yesterday in Etsy, and one is already taken up. WOW!!
