Big bag tote - An apple a day - Ahlmedals of sweden design fabric - Coupon "SPECIAL" - 15% OFF

One of a kind 100% pure cotton bag.

I made it from a beautiful cotton designer fabric from Ahlmedals, it contains white, green and bright red.

The pattern is from a beautiful and inspirational books, Carry Me: 20 Boutique Bags to Sew.

The lining is also bright and absolutely gorgeous red cotton twill from Prada.

It has one big zippered pocket inside.

It accomodates a lot of thing inside, it's wide and deep, faboulous and stylish for a day on the beach or a "dejuner sur l'herbe".

I'll be glad to answer all questions, contact me just to leave me a comment :-)

80cm long (excluding knot)
42cm wide

Frequently asked questions about theYarnKitchen

I use INTERNATIONAL PRIORITY MAIL for shipping. This is NOT TRACKED but affordable, fast and reliable.

Usually, the shipment takes:

3/4 working days in EUROPE
5/6 working days in the USA
7/8 working days in AUSTRALIA and the FAR EAST

I can't control the process and sometimes a single shipment takes more because it takes the wrong way or remains at custom.
The octopus is for AIR PLANTS only.

TILLANDSIA is a tropical plant that doesn't need soil to grow as it absorbs nutrients from the leaves.

Holding air plant upside down is healthy for the plant because it fears humidity at the base after watering.

The plant I use in particular is a Tillandsia Caput medusae that is one of my preferred.

When the air is too dry you can spray the leaves and sometimes take it out and give a plain splash for a quarter of hour or so and then place back in the octopus head :-)

The plant is secured to the felt pod by a thread that I leave inside.

Simply wrap around the plant like a sort of sling and that is sufficient to hold the plant securely inside.
The planters (animal planters, pod planters, hanging planters) are small (and really cute), intended for little succulents contained in a 2" (5cm) little plastic pot.

The size is clearly indicated in each listing.

If you need more information feel free to write to me for more details.
The planters don't have a hole and are not lined.

Felt is waterproof to a certain extent. It means that if some water occasionally spills the felt doesn't absorb it, but it is better to remove and dry the felt because it is biodegradable and can be attacked by mold.

I use my planters along with the little plastic pot that comes from the nursery. During the hot season I take the pot out and give a good splash to mu plants, then I replace them after few minutes.

Felt planters are best paired with low maintenance plants like cactus and succulents.
I'm a succulent lover and I buy my plants directly from the nursery or online.

There are a lot of sellers here on Etsy, on eBay and also at local sellers.

For the USA I have partnered with Linda from Succulent Oasis and you can find a listing just perfect for my planters


I got my air plant in Europe (usually from Till Herba Caeli on Etsy from Berlin)

If you are in the USA you can find them trough easy (for example www.etsy.com/shop/AirPlantShopCom) or on eBay where you can find really a lot (much more than in Europe actually).

If you need more information feel free to write to me for more details :-)
