productive weekend

Aside from the diaper bag and the large tote I'll talk about in just a moment, this weekend I also made homemade strawberry ice cream with Lorney, baked some cookies for a Cinco de Mayo potluck at work tomorrow, and sewed up a billion straps and the outers of a bunch of small and large totes. Lots of new vinyl colors and fabrics for the outers! Fun times. I'll post some pictures later this week.

On to today's tote bag!

Mary was looking for something to drag all her stuff around over the weekend of her July wedding and asked if I could make her a large tote. One of her wedding colors is turquoise. I found that the color turquoise is interpreted differently by pretty much everyone that makes fabric in the color turquoise. For example, both the vinyl and the fabric for Mary's tote are called turquoise, though they're obviously different colors.

Here are the innards. I liked the light blue stripe (or maybe that's also turquoise?) and brown with the outer fabric. I didn't have anything in my stash that really went with the outer fabric in either of her other wedding colors (dark purple, kelly green).

Another picture of the outside of the bag. The first picture was taken from our deck during the day, then the batteries on the camera died. After they'd sufficiently recharged, this is what it looked like inside. What a difference lighting makes, eh?

Once again, a lovely color palette--and you've perfectly suited it to your customer's needs. You rule, noisy! ;-)
