small Sylvie Tote


Hello lovelies, happy Friday to you all!

You know the fabric stack I shared in my previous post? Of course I had to cut into yet another print and sew up a sweet little tote bag right away :)


I combined cotton/linen print for main body and Merchant and Mills Dry Oilskin for the bottom of the bag. I love that oilskin is water resistant and easy to clean, always a good thing when it comes to tote bags.

On a side note. Am I the only one who finds the name oilskin a bit misleading? The material is actually not oily, or a skin :0. It's a sort of waxed cotton which has a lovely smooth feel and cuts and sews beautifully.


I love adding hardware to my bags as I think it takes the finished product to the next level. I must say though, I do pause for a little bit every time I'm about to punch holes in my newly sewn projects. I'm sure you know what I'm talking about :)


And, once finished, hardware never disappoints. It really does add a dose of style and finesse to the finished bag, would you agree?

I used Sylvie Tote pattern to make this little cutie (this is the small size).

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend. Svetlana

  2. What a pretty tote. I've never worked with oilskin, but I do like the idea of an easy to clean bottom for a tote.
