It's in the Bag...


I really meant to share these gorgeous new totes earlier as these two prototypes sold out pretty quick at my retail location, Nest Interiors.  This idea has been a longtime coming.  I bought a similar tote a couple years ago and use it like crazy for daytrips.  I wanted to recreate it but with my own spin.  I ended up finding a pattern in a book we sold here at the store.  Funny how that happens, it sat on the shelf forever; I picked it up and knew that was the bag.  From there, it still seemed forever to have the pattern enlarged at a copy store.  The fabric, too is from last year's trip to the Houston Ikea.  Once all these parts and pieces came together, I realized I hated how the pattern came together.  Technically, I thought it would fall apart with heavy use.  So, I modified it and voila!  A finished product two...long...years in the making!!!


Not to fear, more are being assembled and in different fabrics.  Next up is a gorgeous maybe vintage Ralph Lauren rose print paired with a ticking stripe...giving this tote a totally new feel.  I'll have this up on our Etsy next week if I can squeeze in some quality time with the sewing machine.  But I have recreated my crochet farmers market tote in a delectable spring time blend.

Available now, but limited!  Check it out and keep watch for new totes on my Etsy shop.
