Paris Street Everyday Tote Bag


I added a new tote bag in my shop - it's a Paris Street Everyday Tote bag.

This medium sized bag can carry several books inside or it can hold all of your daily necessities around.  I think it's perfect for everyday use - for shopping, for school, for a trip to the library, or to be used as knitting/crocheting bag... or for any occasion that you can think of  :)

 Close up of the fabric... I love this French inspired fabric!  The fabric is a Japanese imported 100% cotton. 



The bottom  of the bag is reinforced by adding medium weight cotton in brown x blue polka dots fabric.



Here is the side view.  The width of the bag is approximately 3 inches (7.6 cm).




And yes, this tote bag is reversible, too!  I used this pink x white gingham check flannel fabric for the reversible side, to add that extra loveliness to the bag :)  For the handles, brown heavy cotton webbing is used for durability.



I had treasured this French inspired fabric for many many months, and finally I decided to make use of it.   I used up the entire stock of this precious fabric, so this is a true OOAK (one-of-a-kind) bag out there!! 

I hope this bag can find a new home... we'll see ;)



Thanks for viewing and have a good day!

Amy I have been to Paris once, Canet and Pergignan etc (South of France) quite a few times. The picture on your tote reminds me more of my happy holidays in South of France - the atmosphere there was so relaxing, happy and romantic.

Speckled Hen - After reading your comments, now I am dreaming about visiting not only to Paris, but also to South France... *sighs* And did you know that I've been yearning to visit U.K. also? See, I was born and raised in Asia (Japan) and lived in U.S. for more than 2 decades... and now my dream is to visit Europe - esp. France, U.K. and the Scandinavian nations!!

Oh, and thank you for your comments again :)
