I'm a bit fond of this print - from the Utopia range by Free Spirit. I went a bit silly last Christmas when Z and S Fabrics were having a big clearance sale....went into stash-building overdrive!! I seem to have liked this print enough to buy it in THREE colourways. So, in the spirit of the Von Trapp Family, I'm USING that fabric... on EVERYTHING!!!
I even "borrowed" the motif to use as an applique design (to reflect the design on the lining).
This Small Tote is made as a satchel in cotton drill, with binding around the edges of the feature print. Inside it has lining in the same print (!!) in a beige and plum colourway.
The Laptop Bag is made in red duckcloth with pvc covering the print. Inside it is a laptop sleeve made in (you guessed it) the same print.
There are no photographs yet, but I've also made a hat, using the blue colourway for the outside and the beige for the lining.
So... what's inside the new red bag?
