spring tote with grommets
This is the Spring Tote from the spring '09 issue of Stitch magazine. I used a vintage twill stripe for the bottom and lining, which I bought at Music City Thrift about 4 years ago. It's treated with Scotch-Gard... weird. I incorporated part of the selvage in inner pocket. The handles lace through grommets--it was very scary cutting holes into an item that I'd just spent hours sewing, but they turned out fine! I like the vintage look of the other fabrics, but they are certainly not vintage.
