Springtime Senna Tote
In the depths of this past winter in Boston, I craved something cheery and bright to kick me out of a blahhh-weather slump. The fabric for this tote is courtesy of Art Gallery Fabrics, from the Cherie line by Frances Newcombe - I majored in French in college, so the designs and story of the collection appealed to my inner francophile. Plus, the floral print of this fabric is so bright and cheery - I can't help but smile when I look at it, and it's the perfect fabric to welcome spring. For reference, the fabrics I used were: "Decoupage Couleur" for the body, "Les Points Dust" for the straps and bag bottom, and "Bon Voyage Lumiere" for the lining.
I love the outside pockets, a tiny one in the front and a big one in the back - good for stashing lip balm and some business cards, or whatever I need easy and quick access to. The magnetic snaps were easy to install and make the bag look so much professional! As an extra precaution, I added an extra piece of interfacing behind the snap before installing for extra reinforcement.
