Festival Totes

March 31, 2014

For this project I kinda veered away from my vow of not accumulating anything new until I used up some of the things I already had, but…I was gifted with a bag of fabric from a friend that I just couldn’t say no to. I mean, come on, it was free fabric!

I made one of these bags years ago and called it a festival tote because it is so big and convenient for carrying just about anything on-the-go. It’s gone to fairs, to festivals, on vacations and even down in the fraidy hole during tornado warnings.

Isn’t that fabric delicious? Thank you, Faith! I think she said it was left over from curtains.

It has four tabs to criss-cross and close the top.

Since I can’t ever make just one of anything, I redeemed myself somewhat by using fabric I already had to make multiples of the tote. I love, love the tote I made using a pink chenille bedspread. Which one is your favorite?

In anticipation for spring and summer festival season, I’ve already taken them, and a few smaller ones, to the local store where I sell my crafts.

Enjoy!
