Another tote bag

Since I made my first tote bag, I've kind of been obsessed with them.  

Echino bag

Soft and Stable is just the bomb for making bags that are sturdy but light.  It's really easy to work with (none of that horrible fusing that you have to do with other interfacings) and gives a very professional result.

This is my most recent tote bag - Lyndy from Stitchbird chose all the fabrics (main exterior fabric, contrast band, and lining) and this version will be hanging out in her shop as a sample, because Stitchbird is now stocking Soft and Stable (you can find it here, here and here).  It's rather exciting (and possibly dangerous) to have a local supplier.

I'm planning to make another tote bag for myself using this method, and if I'm in the right mood when I do so, I'll take photos and write up a little tutorial.

Beautiful! I can see how making tote bags can be addicting! I love soft & stable, too, but not the price!

Gorgeous bag! Will have to investigate this Soft and Stable stuff as I made a tote a few weeks ago and can see more in my future!

Great! Must get my head around the different interfacing a at some point...! I always enjoy reading your posts, but for some reason on my iPad I often don't seem to be able to comment on your blog-it disappears when I touch Publish? Must get my head around that too...!
