Popsicles Tote

Posted in Sewing

This was the perfect tote to work on during a week of what seems like a ton of snow still on the ground and grey cloudy days.  I love the bright colors of the popsicles – so cheery!

I paired it with a black cotton duck canvas so it will hold up where ever you place it and what ever you place in it.  I really like using the polypropylene webbing for straps because they are strong yet not rough on the hands. They can also be wiped clean unlike cloth straps.  I sew them into the bottom seam and all the way up the sides of the tote to keep the straps secure and strong.

I like to play with colors and go a little wild on the insides of my totes.  Keep the outsides appropriate and the insides fun. 🙂  I picked up the lime green from the popsicles and added some orange and white polka dots for the lower inside pockets

I add a zipper pocket – you can see in the photo –  for money, drivers licenses, etc and to keep them safe and out of sight. I quilted the lime green cotton in a free motion swirl pattern to keep it sturdy as well as pretty.  I just listed this tote this afternoon. I will be sewing a matching popsicles zipper clutch shortly and listing it next week. Thanks for stopping by 🙂
