Here is the purse/tote I made using the Natural Wonder Abalone shell fabric from Studio e and a cobalt blue batik found at Bernina World of Sewing in Raleigh. I used the pattern Zip n Go Tote, but cut it down a little. So instead of 26 x 30 inches I started with 22 x 26 inches for the main bag body. I also placed the outside pocket only 2 inches from the top instead of 3. I am on my way today to CABS event, the Creative Arts Business Summit in Washington, DC. I wanted to show off this lovely fabric.
This fabric is being reprinted for Studio e and will be available again in May or June. It is just arriving to stores for the first time last week. Be sure to check it out at a store near you!
