Well, I told you I’ve been sewing and that’s kept me off of the computer for a while, but I did promise more pics. These are the Tote Bags that I have just completed.
These Shabby Chic Paris Tote Bags are 100% cotton muslin fabric and measure approximately 12″ x 12″ with a 4″ gusset to hold a few more goodies that a flat tote bag. They are fully lined with one interior pocket. The handles drop about 14″. I don’t use patterns, everything comes out of my head as I’m working on them. I’m not even bright enough to write down my own directions some times so each and every one is unique. The image on my totes are not a stamp or an iron on process, they are directly printed onto the fabric and are from The Graphics Fairy. Each is embellished with vintage lace, pearl beads, and handmade muslin roses.
Now without further ado, here are the pictures!
