Time for a reveal. The center panel of this tote is a linen tea towel calendar I purchased in 2009 (the year I turned 50) from Michelle Engel Bencsko of Cicada Studio. Her work is lovely. Instead of storing it in a drawer I decided to cut it up. Pure by Make Life Sweet is a perfect partner. You could personalize it by using applique, embroidery, or a tea towel for the center panel.
Introducing my newest tote pattern...Modern Mary Jane. Sew easy, totally fun. Daughter Creations just finished the hard copy and PDF versions. She's totally awesome. The PDF is now available HERE. If you're interested in a hard copy let me know. Feature fabric is by Alexander Henry.
It even has back pockets!
Super Supreme Candace used denim and velveteen by Anna Maria Horner. What a great combination. I think Mr. Squash House is missing some jeans!
Snazzy back pockets! Love the '60s vibe. Thank you Candace.
I usually have a giveaway when I reveal a new pattern but for something different I'm giving away a tote kit with the pattern. The kit has everything needed to make this pattern except for the fusible fleece.
I've even included a vintage button.
I decided to do a sneaky drawing on comments left on THIS post. The winner is #16 - Simone! Congratulations.
