[FO] Tote bag with asian accents
Originally uploaded by IsabelDecibel
I wanted a pretty tote bag to hold a sketch pad, some pens and other miscellaneous stuff.
I found the asian inspired fabric at a Quilter's store near my office and got a fat quarter of it.
The striped fabric is a cotton/polyester blend I bought to make a nappy bag that I never got around to actually do.
The dimensions of the bag are 35 by 27 cm.
I didn't have enough of the accent fabric to line the bag with so I used this instead:
It's a cotton fabric with little kimono girls. It's a slight clash of cultures I guess (Japan/China) but I think it worked.
I lined the handles with a scrap of the outer accent fabric.
I should have attached the handles earlier so the thread wouldn't show on the outside but I forgot. This will have to do for now.

A friend saw a needle roll I made for my DPN's and asked me to make one for her.
She requested Michael Miller's Knit Pirates for it but also said it was rare and hard to find and left it up to me to make something.
I actually found the fabric quite easily on Etsy and it's lovely. I have enough left over to make a roll for myself as well.
