Combining two of my favourite things – bags and patchwork! 

I love the ombré trends fabric range by the Craft Cotton Company and was lucky to get the chance to use them to make a lovely to tote bag for them using it. The pattern I used to make it was by the Craft Cotton Company and can be found in the vintage floral tote bag kit. The pattern was really easy to follow, and the bag came together without any problems – which for me when doing patchwork is quite unusual, I normally manage to sew at least one or two pieces in the wrong place! It was also my first attempt at making one of these reversible totes so wasn’t too sure how well it would go – am very pleased it worked out so well – I will have to make some more! 

I used the Ombré Trends fabrics from three of the fat quarter sets: blue, lime and plum. I chose the colour combination myself and I spent a long time trying out different layouts with the different colours and patterns and am really pleased with the outcome.
