My newest bag design, these totes are not only beautiful, but they are extremely practical! I start by dyeing individual pieces of heavy linen so that each bag exterior is constructed from one unique piece of fabric. I then fuse first a woven interfacing then fleece/batting to the wrong side of the fabric before then quilting it, adding a few fun bird appliques and stitching them with my unique Free Motion Machine Sketching type of quilting. I had a lot of fun designing these bags, I really like working with the leather; this particular leather I found has a lovely feel with plenty of heft but not too stiff, and the visual texture is reminiscent of the what I get while dyeing my fabric, a win win!
Inside the bags are colorful linings that coordinate with the exterior. There is a large pocket that is sized to hold an iPad or sketchbook, 2 cell phone sized pockets, a key leash, an insert that stiffens the bottom of the bag and it closes with a magnetic snap. I add leather handles for sturdy and very comfortable carrying. The bag is 12″ tall x 14″ wide x 5” deep and the handle has a 12” drop.
