Picture of Easy-Peasy Reversible Tote Bag

I like making my own tote bags because the color, design and specifically the size is totally up to me.

I created my own design in Adobe Illustrator and sent it off to Spoonflower.com to have the fabric printed for me. The sky is the limit if you design your own fabric! I could've had the same design on both sides, but I decided to change it up just a bit. (I do the same when I sew pillows) I only used a portion of the yard so I added some other designs to the fabric (Sunflowers by Dianna Facci)

This bag was adapted from skiptomylou.org.

Lovely project!

Personalized, designer fabric just never occurred to me... but then again, I'm not much of a seamstress. ;-)

What a fabulous artistic approach!

Oh you have to try them!! It's just the coolest thing to receive your own designed fabric. I surprised my sister with her watercolo sunflower pattern and she literally cried when she saw it. It was such a touching moment. :)
