Oh My! ~ Another New Tote Bag!

Oh My goodness! I'm on a Tote Bag Making roll right now, and truly loving every minute of it! Today's bag is fresh off the sewing machine and, Oh My, is it colorful! I do enjoy sewing with colorful fabrics, and this collection certainly fits the bill. Oh My, you simply must keep on reading so you can see just what I mean!

This little gem of a tote bag is made with squares from the fabric line Oh My! by Sanae for Moda Fabrics, and the eye-popping colors and designs are inspired by the designer's homeland of Japan.

These colors would be perfect for any season of the year. This bag is not too big and not too small, but just the right size for using as a purse, a project bag, a library bag or even an overnight bag.

The inside of the bag is fully lined with top quality quilting fabric, and has two pockets on each side for a total of four pockets.

The interfacing used in this bag is Peltex which is a very stiff, but flexible and washable, interfacing which allows the bag to hold itself up without being floppy.

This bag measures 4 by 14 inches on its boxed bottom, 18 inches across the top from side seam to side seam, 11 1/2 inches tall, and the handles extend 7 inches from the top edge of the bag to the top of each handle in the middle. It will be available for purchase over in my Etsy shop along with my other tote bags, quilts, original patterns, afghans and other crocheted items.

My summer break from nursing school is really moving along quickly. In another five weeks, I'll be hitting the books again and leaving my sewing machine to gather dust in the basement until next spring. I have a few more tote bags planned, some aprons and a few other sewing projects, besides my crochet projects that keep my hands busy in the evenings. I'm planning ahead this year and making a few crocheted items that have been popular last minute requests just before Halloween the past few years, and I'll be sharing those here soon. I might even include a little tutorial so you can make one yourself!

Happy Stitching!
