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 🙂
