Here is another bag that I have made that I had to keep from you until the pattern was released. This is the second time I have tested a bag by Sarah Gido at Cozy Nest Designs. I love this tote. Sarah's inspiration was a set of paint samples that she picked up as she was picking out paint for her kitchen.
She liked using a spectrum of different shades of the same color range. But, once the testers got the bag, all kinds of different looks started to appear. This tote became so much more. Check out the other testers' bags here. I now have so many ideas that I intend to use on this bag. This is a tote that can be quilted and you can see that some of the testers did quilt their bags and they look fantastic.
The Spectrum Tote is a large bag measuring 18"w x 15" h x 4" d. The inside has a magnetic snap and a zipper pocket. Since I made my bag she has also added two rounded slip pockets.
This tote has an interlining of canvas that gives it a nice hefty feel. You can also make it with Soft and Stable to get a more structured bag. You will really enjoy making this one. You can get the pattern here.
