I made this tote bag over the weekend. The fabric used is Liberty of London floral prints...
It can be used as reversible, too. (It has a linen lining).
But actually, I did not make this tote bag from scratch... The (finished) tote bag came with this Japanese book that I recently purchased.
Book title: LIBERTY PRINT 1875-2010 SPRING
Inside the book are images of various Liberty prints, the Liberty designers, and some craft tutorials on how to make sewing projects using Liberty prints. It's a beautiful book, and I'm loving every page of the book.
However, the Liberty tote bag that came with the book was a really thin bag (just like a pillow case!) with cheap lining and no batting whatsoever! I didn't think the bag was sturdy enough to hold my everyday stuff
Therefore, I did a minor makeover of this tote bag by pulling the bag apart (as shown below), using my seam ripper. I then added some batting, linen lining, and a few pockets to the inside of the bag...
And this is how the inside of the bag looks like, after the makeover. With a medium weight batting, linen lining, and a couple of inside pockets, the bag is now sturdy enough to be used everyday by me (not a pillow case anymore!)
I also handmade this crochet flower charm, with organic cotton yarn, with a linen covered button and some lace.
I think it goes well with the Liberty tote bag... what do you think?
