Tote bag

Tote bag
Originally uploaded by Maureen1.
After an early morning excursion to the shops for food, I did not poke a nose out of the door - far too hot! Instead I turned the fabric I showed you earlier into this tote bag. It is a nice size and went together easily. I am looking out now for some strong cardboard to put in the base, at present there is some advertising material helping is stand up. Even junk mail can have its uses.

This is stunning. Love the colour and the simple embellishment is eye catching.

That is beautiful! Did you embellish it with fiber and beads? What thread did you use for the beads? I just love the colour - it's so bright and fun!!
Cheers, D

I collect knitting yarns and the embellishment is a mix of a faux fur and a glitter ribbon yarn. I collect buttons too, hence the buttons to 'hide' a wobble in the squashed circle. No beads, I intend this to be a hard working everyday bag.

Beautiful Maureen,
we shall have to meet for lunch again so I can see the bag for real.
Maureen, had you thought about putting template plastic in the base, two layers if not thick enough, then it wouldn't matter if it got wet, just a thought..

I knew that fabric would make a fabulous bag!! It is simply smashing!! Plastic needlepoint material would make a good base- washable too.

I make a lot of bags and use a piece of cardboard sandwiched inbetween two pieces of timtex with fusible web for the bottoms. It creates a really nice sturdy bottom. Just thought I'd pass that along !
