tote bag

Yesterday I was on a mission to make myself a new tote bag. Nothing too fancy, just a simple and practical tote bag inspired by some of the vintage looking bags I found on Pinterest. 

Oh, I can't even begin to tell you how much I adore this combination of gray/ white gingham linen with this wonderfully vintage looking fabric by Denyse Schmidt. Totally not my usual "me".  Maybe that's why I like it so much???

The thing I like the most about this tote bag is the addition of lace as well as the handmade tag. Love, love, love how much character and uniqueness little details like that can add to such a simple project.

Don't you just love when things work out exactly the way you pictured in your head? I'm sure I'll be making more of these totes soon. I think they'd make great teacher presents this Christmas :)

Thanks so much for reading. Hope you all have a very lovely rest of the day. Svetlana
