the inspiration for this tote came from a tiny bit of fabric in a bag full of scraps. there wasn't much of the kitchy kitchen print but there was enough to get started! magically it matched with some other solo fabrics in the stash and became this cute combination of curtain, dot and flower. no pockets adorn the 16" x 12" exterior, but plenty can be found inside including one zip and three slips.
these shots show the zig zag stitch that was also used to top off the tote and trim the handles. interfacing throughout gives a sturdy shape and allows the bottom to be boxed a bit more than usual. this bag comes complete with thoughts of warm spring breezes blowing through an opened window, fluttering the drapes and filling the room with fragrance. how delightful.
