Tote in a tree

Hello all, it’s still a hive of boxes and bubble wrap in this neck of the woods so sewing has been taking a back seat. I have managed to make the tote for my partner in the Mouthy Stitches Swap though 🙂 This was my initial fabric pull; grey linen, 2 grey klona solids,a pale brown klona and a print from Anthology.

When I decided on my design I realised the pale brown was just not going to cut it so I swapped it out for a darker brown. I drew these “trees” on bondaweb then fused them to the brown fabric, cut them out and set to work. I cut tiny little leaves from the green solids in the same way.

 I free motioned all the pieces in place then had the joyous task of burying all those threads!

Here’s the finished article on an Autumnal cherry tree in the garden 🙂 It was a super easy bag to make using this pattern. I’m hoping my partner will like it! Just got to make a key fob now and then I’m miraculously ready to send on time 🙂  

Hope all is good in your corner of the world. Catch you soon x
