In addition to quilting cottons, I seem to be accumulating home dec weight fabric. So this summer, I’m going to make a few tote bags, or maybe a messenger bag or two… or some other kind of bag. I’ve got three books to take inspiration from:
the bag making bible, by Lisa Lam
style stitches, by Amy Butler
carry me, by Yuka Kohizen
I have been trying to decide what prints to mix:
Source: FabricLand, both are drapery, at about $11/metre.
Source: the red fabric is from a drapery store on Keele street, at under $2/metre. the blue batik is from Sew Sisters.
For the 3 pictures below: red print, $4/metre, FabricLand. the striped fabric, and multicolored squares are from a fabric store on Cipero street in Trinidad
