A Cheerful Cherry Tote Bag





















I was going to list this tote bag on eBay for sale, but changed my mind and am offering it for sale to my blogging friends instead. I made it using a new Vintage Inspired Moda Cherry Towel and the matching pink and white polka dot towels. The center of the tote and the flirty ruffled edge have a sweet tossed cherry print that go perfectly with the towels. Pink rick-rack and a fancy pink machine embroidery stitch add to the details. A PINK vintage button and a tab closure keep all of your goodies closed inside.
The inside of the bag has a white pre-quilted fabric over a soft batting and I added a rather large pocket with four compartments to keep your goodies organized. To give the bag even more softness, I also added a soft poly quilting batting to the front and back. My signature touch is to add an unexpected button somewhere on the bag - hence the cherry button at the top.
Darling polka dot straps have an 11 1/2" drop from the shoulder, lined with quilt batting and machine embroidered with that fancy scalloped stitch. Size: 12 1/4" wide at the top, 10 1/2 " wide at the bottom with a 4 1/2" gusset (base). I always add a Scothguard (tm) treatment to my bags.
$34.00 plus shipping - just leave me a comment if you are interested or email me at www.sweetcottagedreams1@comcast.net


Sold, thank you!
