Interesting Inspiration

Smart and well-rounded. An interior divider creates a convenient 2 compartments for managing your essentials inside. This could be a versatile bag for young girls on the go, or for the sassy night on the town. I love the rounded shape and modern pleating in the front and back. Two sizes... just for fun.

I think you'll be seeing more of this style. I want to play with the pockets and the fabric combinations. The larger one pictures has a magnetic closure snap. And the smaller one pictures has a velcro closure (secured to the fabric with a smooth satin stitch).

Apples and Pears, In Pink

So, first I considering taking out all the pockets, and then I added extra ones. I baffled myself sometimes. Here is that same fav tote with double the pockets and yellow polka dots on the inside. Just to recap, this bag still has long handles and loads of room, yet it's still manageable as a carry-on or diaper bag. Two easy-access pockets on the outside, a few more inside.

To Pocket Or Not?

While this tote is clearly one of my favorites, I'm thinking about de-pocket-fying the outside of it -- just look at how cute the backside is. I've kept this design sturdy, but this time with undulating waves of free-hand quilting. Inside are patch pockets to help organize a few of your essentials.

The apples and pears are whimsical enough for the young at heart, but mellow enough for your more sophisticated errands. Complementary polka-dots on a field of chocolate enhance the farmer-market-inspired theme. Great for grocery shopping, as a book bag or your bag of tricks for your next road trip. Super-roomy and completely versatile for everyday use. Side pockets are tight enough to keep a large mobile phone safe, large enough to accommodate most water bottles and soda cans.

Measures about 17" x 15" (excluding straps) and sports a contrast pocket band and mirrored lining. 100% cotton, so it's machine-washable. Top-stitched for durability!

And here we have the pocket front.

Mini-Messenger Satchel

Don't let its compact size fool you - this mini-messenger bag doubles as a purse and iPad protector! That's right, big enough for some of your big-ticket items. Small enough to take everywhere. Interior slots keep city maps, campus schedule, even books at hand (and a double-ring closure keeps them secure). The full flap conceals the main interior sleeve pocket and a handy strap are the perfect length to take you out into the world…prepared!

I made a black one, and a white one; because you just never know. Both feature a small side pocket that is just big enough for a small mobile phone or make up.

To Carry Your Summer Reading

A library tote bag is a must-have, and this tote is the must-have of all. It's a great travel favorite, because you can take it all with you (and stay organized). Roomy interior pockets and another pocket outside pocket let you slip your favorite novel and a pair of sunglasses in with all your essentials. A sturdy base provides stability. Larger than your average tote, this one a slightly dropped yoke. The slight dip at the arm gives you comfort as you sling it over the shoulder. Measures about 17" x 15" (excluding straps) and sports a contrast pocket band and contrast lining and pockets. 100% cotton, so it's machine-washable. Top-stitched for durability!

Delantal de Sandia

Squeeze a little Betty Draper into your daily grind with this endearing accessory. I'm not sure an apron this cute is necessary when exercising your creative prowess in the kitchen, but if you're going to wear one, why not pick a cute one? Sewn from a sturdy cotton twill fabric, the apron is designed with a fitted bodice, but an adjustable waist tie and neck tie that ensures a good fit around your middle and neck. Machine-washable for when you spill Watermelon Margaritas down the front.
