A New Summer Bag!

241-Tote

Sometimes you just need to make yourself a new bag. Last Friday was one of those days. I always love Anna’s patterns so I decided on her super hip 241 Tote. It’s an instant download when you buy it ~ love getting things immediately!

I have been hanging on to this Ruby Star Spring fabric by Melody Miller for quite some time. It’s a cotton/linen blend and I thought it would be perfect for a bag. I paired it up with two Essex linens – Sand and Putty. I’m always a bit intimidated to work with linen because of all the shifting but the Essex linens are really nice and behave (most of the time).

The pattern was great to follow, even for those of us that are 3-dimensionally challenged. ;) Here’s a view of the other side of the bag.

I used another Ruby Star Spring print on the inside and you can see there is also an magnetic snap enclosure.

Can’t wait to take this bag out on the town!
