My second project of the summer was pretty straightforward–a basic tote bag that I’ve made several times. This one is for an upcoming trip to Mexico. I wanted a white bag to match my sun hat with a lining in a tropical fabric that would ideally contain red and turquoise, as those are the primary colors of my vacation wardrobe. I am a sucker for color coordination. I couldn’t find exactly what I was looking for, but I did find a pretty batik that featured the shade of blue I wanted. I ended up with the white exterior and straps I’d originally intended.
I added a single pocket to the interior. Although I’ll probably use it with the white on the outside, it looks pretty good reversed as well.
Easy and functional!
