This is a tote bag I made using fabric from French General's latest line, La Petite Ecole. The pattern I used is called Twist Bag from The Country Sampler.
Here is my daughter's kitten, Perry, getting in on the action. She does this everytime I get out the camera!
I added some detail to the bag with a bit of red crocheted trim around the top. I also cut a piece from the selvage of the fabric and used it as a ribbon trim. The beads are leftover from a necklace class I did with Kari Meng of French General. The class was held at Silver Bella this past November. Here is a link to Kari's blog: The Warp and the Weft.
I fell in love with the red fabric that has all the little objects labeled in French. I can't pronounce any of the words, but I love that it's French! I love the brown and red color combination. This bag pattern goes together very quickly and it holds so much, especially skiens of yarn for my crochet projects.
