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


  1. Love this bag. So stylish 😊 I agree the leather handles do complete the look.

  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.

  3. Nice bag interesting post.

  4. The hardware gives the bag a professional and polished finish, very nice! I love everything you do! Do you mind sharing your source for the metal "handmade" tag? (Also, be safe...I think your area of the world is on an elevated terrorist's an sad world sometimes. :(
