This is another version of linen tote bag. I am in love with linen bag now. 🙂
*approx bag size: 12.5inch x 13.5inch
Cut two 10inch long 2 1/4inch wide linen strap
Create two layered ruffles 1inch apart.
Stamp a image on the back side. I used Stazon ink pad but I don’t recommend. Use just regular Momento ink pad would work fine.
If you worry about fade away when washing, gentle hand wash.
Sew front and back together.
Make a pocket for the inside.
Shoulder strap is 1″ 1/4 wide x 9″. Make two of them.
Iron fusible interfacing on one side to make it a bit sturdier.
Sew both sides.
Mark the center and measure 2inch from the center. Pin one end of strap and do the same with the other strap. You can eyeball the placement.
Sew the opening and two sides, remaining a whole to reverse.
Using 2embroidery thread, hand stitch.
Make different size of fabric flowers and arrange as flower bouquet.
You will love how fabric flower accents upgrade a simple tote bag. I have feeling I will be busy making more flowers tonight. 🙂
