Summer is almost here (hurray) and as I recently purchased some very nice bright hides – yellow, green, purple, I decided to make a mini summer collection of tote bags. I wanted the accent to be on the summer colors so the design should be something simple, almost without decoration .
I very rarely make unlined bags, because as every woman I need many pockets to put all the useful things I’m always carrying with me – a screwdriver or Christmas card, or charger for the broken long ago mobile phone:).
But summer bags are the only ones that look perfect without lining, plus this will lower the price of the bag, because making a lining is practically sewing a second bag.
I choose very simple design just for the front pocket, which a carefully hand cut. Simple bag shape, some rivets and eyelets and… ta da – the first tote is ready and available in my HIE shop!
