I had to "hide" this bag from you so mom wouldn't see it before Mother's Day. This was a group effort. Jenifer provided the fabric and I sewed it up. Charlie and David...agreed it was a nice gift! :-)
I used iron-on vinyl to "waterproof" the tote so it would be beach-worthy. I love the stuff -- I think you'll be seeing a lot more of it.
The fabric is from the Dick and Jane line by Michael Miller.
In progress is this Frenchy handbag. It's the same Amy Butler pattern I used for the craft swap, only a bit smaller. I love this fabric. the main fabric is mirror ball dot by Micheal Miller, the accent fabric is from Summer in the City by Moda, and the lining is something mom and I found at JoAnn. The dot is a bit of a pain because it has some stretch to it.
I cut two bags, so you'll be seeing another one soon.
And another beach tote coming soon...
