Testing, Testing....1, 2, 3

I couldn't help myself. I'm a sucker for pleats, so tested a second bag (there are 4 variations...see my first bag here) from Michelle's soon-to-be-released Pretty Pleats Tote pattern. I actually finished it at our girly weekend, and have been toting it around town ever since.

This time I went for the pleated center panel, and finally broke out my long-hoarded Echino Sunglasses print. I always knew I wanted to make a summer bag with it, but couldn't settle on a pattern. But you know what they say - good things come to those who wait! I honestly couldn't be happier with how this bag turned out...and I've been getting mad requests from friends & fam for one just like it (which is no surprise, because Michelle is a bag-designing genius!)

Oh, and in case you're wondering, I used "Woven in Navy" from Lotta Jansdotter's Echo line for the lining.

  2. I think that this is my favorite version of the bag I've seen yet. I seriously need to make a dress from that fabric. I think it would cheer me right up.

  4. Super fun! The sunglasses print is one of my faves, definitely. I used the green to make some Jane Market bags, and I still carry the around.

    Also, "it's the pleats."

  7. Wonderful! Great bag design that totally does justice to your (rightly hoarded) sunglasses print. Bravo to you and Michelle both!
