Cork Firefly Tote

I made this cork Firefly Tote quite a while ago! I had it saved to gift to a friend of mine for over a year. I took pictures the other day and got to gifted it to her finally. It’s always fun to finally be able to give a gift!

Cork exterior

I don’t think I’ve used cork for the full exterior of a bag until now (only as accent features). It’s really great to use for the Firefly! You don’t have to use interfacing on the cork and I think I only used SF101 on the Main Lining pieces and interior pocket. It’s a really nice option and it is pretty speedy, too!

This is the Project size Firefly and I think it’s perfect to use as a lunch box or for holding your knitting/crochet projects! Of course you can use it however you’d want, too! I think the cork will hold up really well over time and will be wipeable for any spills that might happen.

If you’re newer here, the Firefly Tote has a full video sew-along available for FREE on my blog. Maybe you’ll check it out and sew your own cork Firefly Tote! It’s also the perfect project for using cotton canvas, dry oilskin, and waxed canvas or waxed twill! Lots of great options to choose from, hopefully you can find something in your stash!

    Beautiful bag, unique material and wonderfully functional. It’s nice to see the different materials used on the bags, we too often limit ourselves to just the samples shown. Nice to step out of the box and expand on ones ideas. Thank you for your patterns , we LOVE them.
