My new long tote

March 4, 2009

I made a new tote bag for myself today.  It is made from Hungarian linen which I bought at the Echeri market.  I remember the old lady who showed me this linen, telling me that she made everything by hand.  The texture is quite strong and warm, and has a soft feeling at the same time.

I made this tote for taking to Japan in the middle of this month.  It is very crowded there any time of the day especially on the trains.  So I created it long, not wide.

I think that it is very pretty to use it with a matching little bag like this...  Maybe dangling from the tote bag's handle...

I am working on new pouches with Easter theme appliques.  Please wait for a little while, thank you!

Thank you for visiting!
