The local public library carries a fantastic collection of sewing books, including the latest titles. So for the past few months I have been exposed to and absorbed the Japanese crafting aesthetic of linen and patchwork. I finally got around to making my version of a linen patchwork tote and I'm really happy with how it turned out.
The bag is lined with some heavier weight cotton than the traditional quilting cotton and finished with a magnetic snap and finished so that it could theoretically be turned inside out.
