French Accent Tote Bag using Laminate Fabrics!

French Accent Tote made with Laminate FabricsI made this tote bag and absolutely LOVE it. The first one I made I gave as a gift to one of my son’s teachers for the holidays. Finally I got one made for me and I carry it absolutely everywhere. I use it to carry all my daydreaming items. Books and magazines I want to read, projects I want to work on, my iPad that goes with me anywhere and anything else that simply is too bulky to throw into my purse. This way I always have something to do when I’m out and about whether at doctor appointments or carpooling the kids around. The Laminate Fabric is not difficult to sew with at all and give the best look EVER!

I was able to quickly construct the bag within about an hour and a half. It was a fun project that didn’t take long and that made me feel GREAT! And the best of all, I get to carry it around with me all day long and enjoy it day after day. I love the velvet rick rack accents and the pockets inside to organize small items. The laminate fabrics that I used are from the Lost & Found collection designed by My Mind’s Eye for Riley Blake Designs. These laminate fabrics are for sale by the yard in the Stitches Quilting Shoppe along with four different French Accent Tote kits with different combinations of four unique laminate fabrics from the Lost and Found Collection. If there is a kit fabric combination that you would like for me to put together for you just email or call and let me know. The kit includes everything you need from the coordinating laminate fabrics, cotton fabrics for lining and handles, pattern, velvet black rick rack, fusible interfacing and stabilizer perfectly cut just for you! No need to run to the fabric store to pick up necessary items. All you will need is thread and a bit of time. Perfect gift to give to others!

Happy Stitching,
