Purple Super Tote

I had a great time teaching the Super Tote pattern at my local quilt shop the other day. Plus it’s a great opportunity to use the step-outs to actually turn into a usable bag! Bonus points.

I had gotten this pretty canvas weight fabric from Miss Matatabi along with a few other prints. I’ve always loved how white ink looks on linen, so it was a no-brainer choice for me.

I didn’t do anything too crazy with this one. Again, I used the ‘wrong’ side of my favorite denim for the gusset and handle pieces. I love how it’ll be super durable and will wear well. I’m always interested in playing around with different interfacing and fabric combinations. To me it’s just fun to experiment and try new combinations. And of course another reason to make another bag. Luckily I think I’ve found a home for this one. I hope my friend likes it. eeek!

See you soon!

Pattern: Super Tote Pattern (by me!)
Fabric: Japanese Fabric Linen Blend¬†from Miss Matatabi, lining is Catnap by Lizzy House with a splash of Jeni’s Deamin Vintage

    If your friend doesn’t love it, I do. Purple is my favorite. I am in the process of cutting one out. Never thought about using the backside of the denim. Love it!

    I love the tack on the sides, great attention to detail. What an innovative idea about using the back of denim, much more interesting!

    I love this one! The combination of fabrics is great, and the sides look fabulous like that.
    Surely she’ll love it too!

    my fave bag i’ve seen of yours – love the linen, love purple, love the pattern of the fabric and the bag (‘simple’-ish), and love the back of denim as a ‘neutral’. thinkin’ your friend will LOVE.

    It’s gorgeous! How funny that I was searching for ideas for your SuperTote as I am going to make one today! I wish I was good at colour combo’s like you. That purple is so pretty and the interior is great too. I can’t wait to make mine now.
