Last week Ann L, a workout buddy, came over and played fabrics with me. She helped me put together fabric combinations for more totes. And I happily got started. I'm sorry the brown bag on the right doesn't photograph better - the fabric is a lovely brown gradated one with the lighter part used as the lining. You can see a bit of this from the zipper flap and tote. This greeen/grey print is pretty and parts of a green gradated fabric provide the bands and lining. The little zippered pouch is one I made for me because I keep giving them away.
I've had this brown/turquoise batik for a while and have paired it with other batiks for contrast strips and lining. This evening before dinner I worked on this tote - it's all set to be assembled.
And this morning before I left the house to spend most of the day with my parents, I had to make the accompanying zippered pouch.
