Spring Day Tote Bag with Fabric Flower ... Immediate download available

This tote was chosen as one of the top sewing projects of 2010 at Martha Stewart's website, here is the link:

This listing is for the pdf instructions to make this sweet Spring Day Tote Bag. Tutorial also includes how to make this shabby chic fabric rose.

The tote bag measures about 12" x 11 1/2" and has a 2 1/2" gusset. The handle drop on the bag pictured is about 5 1/2", however you can make the handles longer if you wish.

There are 2 large pockets on the outside of the bag, 1 in front, 1 in back. There is 1 pocket on the inside. This tote is fully lined and is nicely padded. There is a magnetic snap closure.

I used 3 coordinating fabrics to construct the pictured tote. My fabric is Boutique by Chez Moi for Moda. The outside pockets have piping at the top edge. You can choose to add decorative top-stitching like I did, as well.

The fabric brooch can be made any size and from your choice of fabric combinations, I used 2 matching fabrics. It has a brooch pin back and is removable.

The tutorial is in a pdf format and available for immediate download.
