A Sew Cherry Tote

You all know my friend Lori, right? Ms. Lori Holt from Bee in my Bonnet?

Have you all seen her new fabric line - - - SEW CHERRY with Riley Blake...
And her new patterns too... Like some adorable aprons... Including this one...
And this one that inspired my new Tote!

When I saw this Apron I knew instantly I wanted to make a Bow Tucks Tote inspired by it. And I am simply happy with the way it turned out..

I had so much fun sewing with SEW CHERRY...

I headed to Fabric Depot last Friday and was so glad to see they were carrying her line. And that they had just a itsy bit of the White with little cherries, left. I bought the last 2 1/2 yards. Phew...

It made the perfect little button and the lining for the inside of the Tote too...

The skies above shone blue for about 10 minutes this Saturday... Just enough time for me to take a few photos of my new Sew Cherry Tote. Phew!

I used the Bow Tucks Tote pattern from Penny Sturges. It's available HERE... I have made this tote probably 10 times now. I love the pattern. I left the ties on the side off (bows) of this tote and I also added a magnetic closure.

SEW cute! I just adore Lori's fabric line - I'm headed to SLC in a few weeks and my first stop will be Material Girls so I can finally get my hands on some of her fabrics! I haven't found anyone around here who sells it! Lucky you to live by Fabric Depot! xo, Nan

A very cute bag indeed! The Bow Tucks was the pattern that got me hooked on totes and purses :) and with this fabric is it adorable~!

Perfect, and so "you"! I just finished cutting out yet another Bow Tucks bag for a friend at work. I must say, though, the ties are my favorite detail - I can't bear to leave them off.
