Arizona Super Totes + a arizona fabric giveaway

When I first saw April Rhodes first fabric collection (Arizona) for Art Gallery Fabrics I of course fell in love.  I love geometric prints and the colors were right up my alley.  I feel really lucky to be able to sew with them.  I knew the colors would pair well with denim so they had to become Super Totes!

I loved making these two Super Totes.  I love the opportunity to incorporate many fabrics into one tote. It’s pure joy seeing something like this come together over the course of a few days. I had forgotten what a fun sew they are.

These are headed to quilt market for April’s booth. I can’t wait to see all the other samples being made.

Pattern: Super Tote (by me!) available as a PDF here, and check out some of the shops you might find the paper version.

Fabric: Arizona by April Rhodes for Art Gallery Fabrics – Limited Edition, denim from Hancock Fabrics used right and wrong sides
Zippers: Zipit on Etsy
Magnetic Snaps: Being Bags on Etsy

And now for the giveaway!  I was sent a fat quarter bundle to give away!  Woot!

    I LOVE this collection. It’s absolutely stunning. I’m due to have my third baby at the end of the summer, so I imagine the next few months will be filled with last minute panic! 🙂

  6. My summer plans revolve around enjoying downtime with my children and gardening!

  7. tiffany says:

    Yep, the fabric is really super… and perfect for the bags! I’m in school (new chapter for the second half of life), so I’ll be in the lab this summer. Gardening, beaching, and hanging with kiddos too, of course.

  8. Tammie says:

    Beautiful totes! I plan to take my kids on some fun road trips this summer!

    Beautiful bags, I like how the zippered piece is inset, very nice. As for my summer I plan on enjoying the warmth, living in Illinois this winter was a tough and long one! Thanks for the tutorials and the giveaway.

    i usually gravitate towards muted colors and greys and shy away from patterning but this bag is so beautiful! we have a few trips planned over the next 3 months..really 1-2 trips per month. it may be the busiest summer we have ever had! i’m looking forward to some good knitting time and i picked up a coups of easy cross-stitch sets to work on as well. thanks for the giveaway!

  25. Melanie says:

    Love the bags!!! No big summer plans yet…hoping to do a road trip to visit family.

  26. Julie says:

    A bundle would be very wonderful – our summer plans are to find a house to move into! We’ve just sold and have to move out by 28 May and are currently homeless from then…….so a bundle would be a good fresh sewing project for wherever we end up, once we are settled!

  27. Anonymous says:

    Love the bags, very pretty. No plans for this summer. I have just started getting my Vendor Booth in various shows, so hopefully can continue to do that through the summer. Working very hard to get my business name out there.

  31. Sophia1 says:

    Gorgeous totes! I bought the pattern and hope to make one soon! Spending time at the beach this summer!!

  38. Debra says:

    This summer I am going to the American Sewing Guild conference in St. Louis. I’ve never been to this conference or to St. Louis, so I am really looking forward to it. Thanks for the chance to win!

  39. Carrie S. says:

    Your Super Totes look fabulous in those fabrics! I love the collection more every time I see it! We’re hoping to work in several little mini trips this summer instead of one big one. So far we have plans to visit the zoo and to bike ride the Virginia Creeper. Thanks for the giveaway!

    Love, love, love!!!

  41. Oh I love your tote bags! We don’t have any big plans for the summer but I’m hoping we get the opportunity to take my toddler to the beach – we went to SoCal over Christmas to visit family and he was entranced by the Pacific.

  42. Allie says:

    They look great! Love the print combinations.

  43. Thanks for the chance to win. We plan to take our girls to the beach for the first time….and I have to have hip surgery (at age 35 – boooooo!!!). bonandclyde AT hotmail DOT com

    Love the bag. Hoping to do some camping this summer!

  53. MeganW says:

    house work, house work, house work… with a little {read BIG} trip to Norway in the middle of all that. Still loving your super tote pattern and in these fabrics it totally looks awesome!

  54. Kelli says:

    One of these days, I *will* make a Super Tote. I’m just dying to have it replace my ratty diaper bag. As for this summer, I may be moving. Not sure if that is “fun”. Yes, fun to be moving into some new digs, but to the process — oh so stressful.

  55. Taya@TypeB says:

    Well, I’m not sure if it qualifies as “fun” but we’re moving house this summer. What will be fun is having some space to start sewing again!

  56. Desiree says:

    love this pattern! We’re going to Disney World later this month!

  57. Kelli Ward says:

    they look great! isn’t this fabric just the best? i love that it feels so adult while still being a quilting cotton.

  58. Those fabrics are awesome! This summer after some house decluttering I’m planning on sewing a lot!!

  59. Jessica Shaw says:

    Very cute! Our plans include going to New England for a family trip and prepping for Baby #1 due in September!

    Gorgeous Super Totes! The fabrics are wonderful.

  61. Unknown says:

    I love that modern Southwest look. Such beautiful fabric. We get to go to Oregon this summer with family. It would be fun to make that tote with those neat fabrics for all the stuff you need to take on family vacations.

    Those are truly stunning! I cannot wait to sew with Aprils line. This summer we are watching lots of baseball, going on adventures and spending lots of family time at our home and lake house. Thank you Anna for such great patterns and giveaways!

  64. Alex K says:

    I’ve recently started sewing and am working on making the perfect yoga back (which will ideally also be the perfect soccer bag). I have this pattern tagged as one to start with! The patterns of that fabric are so much fun!

  65. Sara says:

    I love all of your bags and those fabrics are beautiful! I’m looking forward to spending more time with my sister this summer!

  66. Kristi says:

    This is such a beautiful fabric collection! This summer I’m hoping that we can take it easy – my youngest will start Kindergarten in the fall, so this summer is leading up to a big transition for him (and me!). My husband and I always have a long weekend together in Newport for the folk festival. We always look forward to it! heykristi123 at gmail dot com

  67. Anonymous says:

    I just found your blog. Love, Love, Love it.

  68. Your work is amazing! I absolutely love the combo for the second bag! This is my favorite collection of the limited release AGF. Only summer plans for us are flying to the east coast so see both my husband and my families, which costs a fortune so that’s about it for us. 🙂

  69. amanda says:

    amazing fabric! We are going to visit family and play!

  70. I cannot wait until i can order reams of this gorgeous line! Our summer is full of traveling, 6 weeks so far. Should be fun and crazy! Lizzyp_159@yahoo

  71. SIMPLESEW says:

    I have lots of fun plans, I have 8 grandkids under 6 and a new play house. We are also friends with Mrs. Texas who just won, so she is coming over for a princess party and ribbon cutting for the new play house and I am going to dresss up the girls and have a playdate with a fun bunch of little girls and having a tea party. So i want to sew some cute things for the house.

  88. Jacklynn says:

    My summer plans are to be outside more and inside sewing when the weather is bad. The Super Tote is my favorite bag pattern, currently making number three as a baby bag for my step-daughter. I like the use of denim – have to find an old pair of jeans to cut up from hubby’s closet (shhh!). Thanks for the give away!

  89. Susanna says:

    wow..i would love to make one of these beautiful yet functional bags myself! I have a 5 month old so this would make a chic diaper bag! My plans this summer is to hang out with my 2 daughters and take short trips here and there. Thanks!

  90. We will be visiting family a lot this summer… Then spending a week in the mountains so we can recover for ourselves.

  91. Amber says:

    Hi there! I really need to make one of these totes! This is a year for working so no real plans but hopefully a couple mountain biking weekends followed by a relaxing day of sewing. Thanks for the inspiration!

  92. momma says:

    Love these! I’ve had Arizona on pre-order for what seems like forever now I see these.
    I’m taking my teenager to her first big music festival this summer, yikes! Then going to Europe to see the family and go sightseeing by train

  93. knottygnome says:

    all my traveling is in the spring so come summertime i just plan to relax at home. thanks for the giveaway!

  94. I have been dying for the release of this fabric! I love it!! I just purchased one of your bag patterns and I am getting this tote pattern next! We are traveling to Charleston this summer for vacation and I would love to take this tote along! My 13 year old daughter and I are taking sewing lessons this summer too! I love it more than she does, but she is super talented(: We plan to make zipper pouches, pajama pants, and hopefully a top! These fabrics would be perfect for our pouches!! Thanks!! Susan

  95. Emily says:

    Love your super totes! We are having a baby girl any day, moving a few streets over, and trying to sell our townhouse.

  96. Kunklebaby says:

    Love the bags! Can’t wait to get my hands on some of this line! I’m extra excited a few are being released as knits & voile.
    This summer I plan to hang out with my kids & see where their imagination (and energy) takes us. And lots & lots of sewing where I can fit it in.

  97. Sarah Lester says:

    I’m in the middle of making this tote bag right now! 😀
    This summer I’ll be planning my wedding! slester9 [at] gmail [dot] com

  98. Oh wow! I definitely need to sew myself one of these. Love the fabric! We’re going on a week long vacation to San Diego this summer. I’m so excited!

  99. Michele says:

    Summer plans…hmmm. I want to get my house ready to put on the market. That means organizing and tossing. I also want to work on making my little biz more profitable.

  100. allierae says:

    Beautiful work, as always. I have the Super Tote pattern and I’m about to make one too. Not sure yet what the summer plans are other than a few weddings to attend.

  101. carrie says:

    Nice totes! My summer plans include a short trip to Chicago and a staycation at home while I wait for my baby’s due date.

  102. What a fun print collection! This summer we’re driving out of state for my youngest sister’s wedding!

    1. colorvibrant at gmail dot com

  103. Love the totes – especially the fabric used on the zipper tops. No summer plans….yet!

  104. LeahRene says:

    I love those bags! I’m definitely going to make one! This summer I’m headed to vegas but that’s all I have planned for now.

  105. Unknown says:

    Our first born will be arriving any day now, so no plans other than lots of hanging out around the house! I’m hoping at some point we’ll feel confident enough to attempt a quick beach getaway.

    secretcityranch at gmail dot com

  106. Lynne Tilley says:

    I love this bag, especially because it has the zipper closure which makes contents safer when out and about. I plan to spend the summer with my new grandson who, at 3 weeks of age, has just had open heart surgery for a major heart defect. He is a little trooper and is healing and progressing well at this point. He and his Mommy & Daddy will be living with us while he recuperates this summer, to be near the Medical Center and his doctors. Long road ahead, but joyful in each day we have with him, and looking forward to the future!

  107. Kelly says:

    Since I just had a baby, our family’s summer plans are mostly stuff like going to the zoo, museum, library, park, and conservatory. Kinda boring maybe, but I’m really looking forward to it!
    Those bags are lovely. I think I’m going to need that pattern after all.

  108. dolores says:

    You DO have a way with fabric combos and zippers!:)
    Hmmm…summer plans….I think the biggest thing this summer will be my parents 60th anniversary get together….hopefully at the Outer Banks or Chincoteague…either place is fine with me!:)

  109. mle says:

    I am utterly in love with those fabrics too! The super tote is a great way to really show them off too. I can’t believe summer is only a month away! we’ll probably just be doing fun stuff like vacation bible school, summer camp and water parks. 🙂

  110. Heather Hambrick says:

    What great bags!! I just finished sewing one and would agree it is a fun sew.


  111. Hanging by the pool with my Boys. I love the fabric and the bags u make. I always feel inspired after your blog entries!

  112. We don’t really have any summer plans right now. Just saving up for a house.

  113. Marci Girl says:

    Beautiful bags. Hmmm..summer plans…looks like a summer school reading program for my oldest…sad but true!

  114. Eleanor says:

    Work. Sew. Swim. Work. Sew. Camp. Work. Sew. Snack.

  115. Jeni says:

    love these! we are going to lake erie for a few weeks this summer. we are excited!

  116. Marti Taylor says:

    We don’t have any major plans this summer, just some small family day trips to the zoo and science center. Possibly a boat ride for my daughter’s 5th birthday, she loves boats!

  117. Oh, gosh, I suppose I HAVE to enter. This fabric is amazing and your bags are so great! But, also, just have to say that your images with the cool house in the background are perfection!

  118. DKB says:

    im sending my kids to my parents for the summer, and im not embarrassed to admit that i can not wait for summer to get here!
    perhaps there may be a little business trip this summer, but its not yet been finalized.So much easier to manage one if the kids are away.

  119. I love this bag it is on my list to make! I am road tripping this summer with the kids so everyone is getting new bags made for the road!

  120. Liz says:

    I absolutely love this collection and can’t wait to get my hands on it! Summer is research time…hopefully I’ll get time to play outside too!

  121. beautiful bags , I need one mine is old, thanks

  122. Ali says:

    Oh pretty! Hmm, I’d love to be able to have a bag end up looking that professionally finished on the top. This summer my husband has a family reunion on the Oregon coast, I’m looking forward to seeing everybody!

  123. pkrueger says:

    Love your bags! I work full time, but love to garden in the summer, even tho it takes away from my sewing time.

  124. dagan says:

    thank you for the nice giveaway! i’m planning on going to lake erie this summer to dip my toes. i’ve dipped into every great lake but erie, so this will be a fun little trip!

  125. Lyanna says:

    Love your totes, and awesome fabric to top it off! Our family is headed to Virginia this month, and I’m still trying to convince my husband we need to go camping in Maine this summer too.

  126. welliewalks says:

    Love these! I’m trying to tell my daughter to let me make one of these for her book bag to bring to college this fall, and then I thought, hey, I could use one of these on our road trip this summer to hold all my stuff in the car! Thanks for the inspiration!

  127. Jenny says:

    Love your Super Tote pattern, I’ve made two and I know I’ll made a dozen more. What’s your favorite way to interface/interline them, I can’t remember if you’ve said. I’ve only done the canvas and 101, but I’m thinking about making a less stiff one next.

    This fabric is gorgeous and I’d be soooooo psyched to win some! Thank you! Oh, I’m going to the beach this summer for the first time in for-ever.

  128. gpc says:

    Love love that tote and the fabrics! I really need to make one for my work stuff. Summer will be the usual work and gardening, but hopefully also lots of outdoor training with the local search and rescue group. 🙂

  129. QuiltsnBooks says:

    Love the tote and the fabrics. I hope I am able to attend the Olive Juice workshop!


  130. I noticed that my Go Anywhere bag is getting a bit worn so it’s time to make the Supertote! This summer, my husband wants to drive from CO to Yellowstone and I just might go along. I hate camping but Yellowstone would be fun.

  131. Ellyn says:

    oh it did make up so pretty in your bags! I’d love some. This summer I’ll be getting my youngest ready to head off to college!

  132. such amazing fabrics and they look awesome made up into totes 🙂 this summer. . . .i shall sleep!!!!!!!!

  133. Gina says:

    I loved this fabric at first sight! I bought your Super Tote pattern when it first came out and have yet to make it. I think I will need to make it with Arizona; it is perfect! We always do a trip over spring break when the kids are out of school and stay close to home for the summer. We might go to Disneyland this summer. Thank you!!!!

  134. Kathryn says:

    love the color palette of this line. I have 3 Super Totes waiting to be made for our summer trip to the East Coast- the annual 3 week Tour de Family!

  135. After living in Arizona for the past 21 years, I think this needs to play a significant role in my fabric stash. 😉 This summer we are: Graduation from Grad School, starting a new job, having a baby, moving to a new city, and probably playing in water a lot. Not for the feint of heart! We’re leaving Arizona in January of this next year, so an Arizona fabric line will be a good sign-off, don’t you think?

  136. Meghan says:

    Love both of these totes! And I absolutely love the Arizona fabric line!
    So far nothing concrete is planned for the summer as we might be putting an addition on our house….though getting away while construction is going on sounds like a very good idea to me!

  139. Love these fabrics. This summer, first to Squam for sale – ing and then relax!!!

  140. Leslie says:

    Heading to Scotland for a two week tour. Love these southwest inspired fabrics.

  141. veronicamade says:

    I love this line of fabric. It’s very modern-looking. I don’t have any plans for summer yet.

    i hope to do some hand piecing on the porch. i only do hand piecing and hand quilting and find it so enjoyable.

  302. Summer will include a couple more super totes and LOTS of pool time. The plan is to have one tote per kid – these are AWESOME for overnights and swimming. And of course I use mine as a handbag.

    I am more inspired to sew in the summer – it’s the light and hot days and long evenings and all the fruit and flowers ….. I have plans to make a king size quilt in lots of creamy colors to fit with our old house and wood floors. And lots of totes for my kids to haul their stuff to camp and the pool etc.
