tote bag for my friend

My Creation

My latest project, a tote bag for my friends birthday, she chose yellow, not my favourite colour, I added the blue for the trim and the lining, I made it without a pattern, which meant a lot of sitting and thinking and drinking tea, anyway now it is finished I am very pleased with it, it can be expanded by untying the side ribbon trim,

Love the yellow fabric and co-ordinating blue ties at the side. What make is the fabric?

The material is a medium weight cotton, same pattern just different colours, I am lucky I have a fantastic haberdashery shop just by where I work, they are so few and far between now and we should do all we can to support these shops, that is my excuse for being in there at least three days a week, if is a treasure trove of fabric and haberdashery,
