Spring Crescent Tote

It had been too long since I’ve made one of these, so I made this Spring Crescent Tote! The other day one of the places I’ve taken photographs before had their lawn covered in these beautiful blue Spring blooms. I’m not sure what kind of flowers they are, but they only last about 24 hours or so.

Inspiration Strikes

I got to work sewing up this Crescent Tote using See You At Six floral canvas (purchased from StyleMaker Fabrics) that I had on my cutting table. This combo was pulled originally to use on another pattern, but it felt like a good opportunity to sew up the Crescent Tote instead! I was hoping that it would be fun to take pictures with the little blue flowers, but by the time I sewed up the tote it was high noon and I didn’t really end up liking how my pics turned out. Then I was busy that evening so it was too late to take more later. Oh well! It was a fun burst of inspiration and I’ll take it!

So I took the rest of the pictures in my studio and tried not to be too disappointed that I missed my opportunity with the little blue flowers. Next year?

Fabrics and zip!

Carolyn of Sullivan’s Trim kindly gifted me a handful of zipper-by-the-yard cuts. This minty blue/green color match too perfectly not to use! I paired the floral canvas with a yarn dyed canvas for the lining. And my Cookie color webbing (from my shop) for the handles. The lining canvas is one of my favorites. It’s one I purchased from Fancy Tiger Crafts and am kicking myself for not ordering more. I don’t think the manufacturer makes it anymore! It’s a really nice weight hemp/cotton blend. Hope you find this Spring Crescent Tote inspiring!
