Appliqued Tote Bagcomments (0) December 18th, 2012 in gallery
This pretty little tote bag was designed for a Secret Santa project. It can be used as a reusable grocery bag or a purse. The receiver of the gift likes Cloisonné, the colors blue and green, and hummingbirds.
The sturdy bag is made with fabric scraps in a variety of textures, appliqued with a satin stitch onto a blue and green checked base. The flowers are fussy cut from a bold print and appliqued to the bag.
Check out the hidden outside pocket! Great for keys or a cell phone. The blue wings and tail of the hummingbird on this side are made from a gold edged trim that is left loose so it can overlap the pocket.
It also has a tab with a key chain ring to which has been attached a carabiner for keys.
