The lovely ladies from Ampersand Design studio launched a fabric collection called Abstract Collage together with PBS Fabrics. They send me two samples all the way from Kansas City!
The colors and prints give me an instant happy feeling and I wanted to sew something I will get a lot of use out. A tote bag seemed like the perfect fit! I combined the two beautiful Ampersand design fabrics with a piece of real leather I once bought second hand from her.
I saw a great bag on Eva's blog and decided to use the same free pattern called the "Tienertas". Jace did it made a good photo tutorial and the bag is really a quick sew. The only thing I changed is the reinforcement with stylevil. Very happy with my new spring bag!
