Hello friends, I have been wanting to do another giveaway, but have just not gotten around to setting it all up. I also couldn't decide what I wanted the prize to be. After consulting with some dear friends (thanks Kelly Ann), I decided on one of my lovely East Hampton Market Totes. Here she is!
I wanted to offer something everyone could use, whether you knit, paint, sew, needlefelt or just like to shop! This great tote will work for you. She is extra roomy and very practical. This pattern is one of the best I have worked with (Tanya Whelan I believe). My tote is roomy and comfortable to hang on your shoulder. It sits just right against your body and I have used the softest quilt batting as interfacing, which makes it even softer. You can easily fold her up to pack in a suitcase when you travel.
The fabric is a gorgeous peach and pink floral by Heather Bailey.
Since I love to mix things up, I lined this tote with some of my beautiful designer remnants. The lining is fashioned from a classic French toile, a pretty botanical and a pocket of cool yellow and red toile. This tote is anything but boring! The colorful strap is another great Moda cotton fabric and to keep it soft on your shoulder, I added more quilt batting.
You can take this tote to the market, the beach or maybe quilting class. It will become your 'go to' bag of choice. Be sure to check out the dimensions to see how very large it is.
The East Hampton Tote measures 20 inches wide x 19 inches tall ...not including straps
Machine washable in cold water and hang to dry...a quick press would be nice also ;-)
Ok...here's how you can own this beauty....
