Lemon Tote

lemon tote 1 lemon tote 2 lemon tote 3

i’m on a roll with finishing in-progress projects that have been on hold.  this time, a little tote bag with a part of this leftover citrus print fabric that i once used for a snap frame clutch.  for a bit of fun, i embroidered a lemon slice that, when overlapped with the print, looks almost as if it is part of the fabric.  the resulting tote has a fresh, summery look that will be perfect for the season ahead.

since i had a limited amount of fabric, the tote is on the small side.  but it’s a great size for taking on local errands, afternoon walks or a trip to the café.

寝かせていた製作中の作品がまた一つ出来上がりました。以前クラッチバッグを作ったこのシトラスプリントの生地は今度はトートバッグに。持ち手には生地の模様と重なって、一見プリントの一部と思ってしまいそうなレモンスライスの刺繍を付けて遊び心をプラス。夏にふさわしい爽やかで楽しいバッグになりました。

布の残りが限られていたので、サイズはやや小さめ。近所のおつかいやお散歩、カフェへのお出かけにちょうどいいぐらいかな?
