Perfect Gift for Your Favorite Dog Lover

Posted in Sewing

I fell in love when I saw this beautiful cotton fabric. Awesome, photo realistic dogs – yorkies, golden retrievers, labs, poodles, cocker spaniels, dachshunds, german shepherds, and beagles. I couldn’t wait to get started turning this fabric into beautiful totes and wristlets.

Dog Tote

This large tote has the beautiful dogs cotton paired with black faux leather. It measures 14.5 x 16 inches with a base of 5.5 x 11.5 inches. Easy to clean black straps are sewn into the tote bag, all the way into the bottom seam. One outside pocket for holding your cell phone, keys, pens, etc.

Inside fully lined with tan kona cotton and multi color dog bones on brown cotton pockets. One zipper pocket for hiding valuables, 2 small and 2 large pockets ring the inside of the tote. Also a key fob and key ring for your keys, etc.  Strong and sturdy, this tote can handle everything you put in it.

New Tote: Blue Sailboats

Posted in Sewing

I finished a new tote this weekend.  I saw this sailboat fabric a few months ago and fell in love with it.  I love the artistic brushstroke sailboats all done  in blue. The white background highlights the boats perfectly. I paired it with a navy blue duck and navy straps to stay true to the simple blue and white of the fabric.

I’ve pulled the bag outwards so you can see the beautiful boats. You can pack this bag with 4 – 5 rolled beach towels and still have room for sunscreen, water bottles, and lunch.

I tweaked the construction of this tote.  I used polypropylene webbing and sewed it into the bottom seam as well as up and down the entire bag. The polypropylene webbing  is strong,  waterproof , does not absorb dirt or water, while still being  gentle to the hands.  I also tweaked the interior bottom support so it doesn’t buckle when the load gets a little heavy.  I think this is my favorite tote… so far : )   You can find it now at SibStudioSewing .
