NEW! Large Bags!

I just started making these fabulous tote bags! I am in love and plan on making even more!

The first one I’m going to show you is my Large Patchwork Poppies Bag. il_430xN_63121682I found the pattern first and then it told me to use charms to make the patchwork section. Well, I had bought the Tina Givens Poppies Collection Charms from www.RagamuffinFabric.etsy.com not too long ago and decided they would be perfect for my first tote bag. I chose a beautiful peachy, pink batik fabric to accent this bag and a simple black fabric for the handles. The entire bag is quilted and the inside is lined with the same batik fabric I used to accent the edge. A pleat in the center of the bag adds a unique touch.

The second bag I finished is my fabulous Sparkling Tulip Batik Bag (which sold the same day I listed it!). This bag I used some fabulous, sparkly (yes, I said SPARKLY!) tulip printed fabric for the front and back panel of the bag (and the inside pockets) and il_430xN_63127055accented it with a fabulous orange and yellow batik fabric (it is GORGEOUS). This bag is perfect for spring/summer/fall/anytime and will without a doubt make everyone at the farmer’s markets envious of you! I also included two pockets on the interior of this bag. One that measures 4 3/4” x 3” that is split into two (perfect size for business cards or credit cards. The second measures 5 1/2” x 6 1/4” with a split in it that makes a perfect pen holder and a cell phone or miscellaneous item pocket. Two small blue ribbons are on the top of the bag that can cinch it together or hang down to add more flavor!

This bag is very sturdy…it is quilted with a layer of batting and white fabric. The inside is lined with the gorgeous batik fabric that accents the front of the bag! And did I mention the tulip fabric SPARKLES!

The other fabulous thing about this bag is that I have the perfect zippered pouch to match: the Tulips in Bloom!

I hope you enjoy these as much as I do…I’m sure there will be more bags coming soon!
