A bag for Katy

Some time ago I had emailed Katy about bartering dish cloths for whatever she wanted that I could make. Katy mentioned a toile tote I had made before so that is what she is getting. I just came up with my own design{one late night when the I couldn't figure out how to make a bamboo handled bag}. Anyway, Katy's bag is made with brown and cream toile and lined with sage green plaid homespun.

Here is a closer view of the pleated tote.

Katy didn't want super bright colors, being a country gal, so I thought this was perfect. Katy, I hope you agree!!


I pleated the handle as well.
Katy your bag is on its way today!! Hope you enjoy it!!

Oh, elise!
It's beautiful! You're so right -- it IS perfect for a country girl!

I love the super bright colors, but they just don't go with my decor, either. I still love them, though -- they're too happy not to!

Blessings,
Julie
