How was your weekend?
I spent mine sewing.
I recently acquired some new fabrics
and was itching to make something.
This is The Katherine Tote.
(Can you guess who it's named for?)
The fabric is an abstract stripe named "Rishikesh."
It's a heavy poly/cotton upholstery in colors of
gold, yellow, brown, blue, green and a deep rose.
It's lined with an elegant print by
Lydia Irwin Designs for P/Kaufmann Fabrics,
which has a soil & stain repellent finish.
I also made a Small Tote.
This bag is favored by sock knitters.
It's a small bag, think fabric basket,
and is ideal for those small knitting projects.
I lined this bag with a pretty screen print fabric from
Mill Creek Fabrics.
Can you tell I have a serious fabric addiction?
You can see these and all my bags at
my Etsy shop, ButtermilkCottage.
