As much as I love how it turned out, I loved sewing it. It measures what I consider is a medium/large tote at about 12.5 inches tall and 19 inches across. With a 3 inch depth, there's plenty of space to store anything from laptops and tablets to swimsuits and sunscreen. The interior features one zipper pocket to keep those personal items secure, while 2 slide pockets store easy to reach items when you're on the go and need to grab your keys/cell/lipgloss without digging through the contents of your bag (been there, done that). To add that pop of color and fun, the bottom of the bag features the same metallic gold polka dot cotton fabric. The exterior burlap is the same print on both the front and back. You probably recognize it from the Clean Sound and New bag and the set of four bridesmaids totes that I've previously sewn. I have a stack of these burlap coffee bean sacks, so they are making several debuts using different bag designs and a unique lining fabric.
Although this bag is near to my heart, I have decided to make it available for purchase in the shop. I decided that I want to share it with someone else who will love it as much as I do, and I'm excited for who that person will be. You can find photos, details, and purchase information when you follow the link here.
I'll be back later this week with a few more sewing and non-sewing related updates! Have a great week!
