Hey y’all! This month we are going to be sewing what I am calling The Autumn Tote. This oversized tote bag will combine canvas, quilt weight cotton and vegan leather. The antique brass hardware and tassel will become the defining features of this classy bag which is sure to fetch compliments from friends and strangers alike!
The burnt orange, slate and chestnut color story for this design was inspired by the turning of the leaves and withering foliage here in Northern Virginia.
The project will unfold over 4 weekly tutorials on Tuesday, October 5, 12, 19 and 26 at 2 p.m. ET on YouTube. Our Sewspire Patrons will be meeting throughout the week to discuss the design and exchange ideas on Thursday Oct. 7, 14, 21 and 28 at 7 p.m. ET.
The Sewspire Zoom Room will be open to field project related questions on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons between 3 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. ET during this event. Email Andrea at [email protected] if you would like to attend one of the meetings OR become a Sewspire Patron to gain access to all of the events + a complimentary copy of the project design board.
Purchase your copy of the project design board in my Etsy pattern shop!
