meriwether tote bag finish + winners

hello Friday!
well…still trying to get my bearings this summer, but loving the days full of time with my kids…they grow up so fast in this season!

A little bag project in the works using #cork from @sewmanycreations fabric from @stitcherydickory #meriwetherfabrics @windhamfabrics what do you think?? Happy Thursday!

so..if you remember this is where I left you on Wednesday...

so…I want to share just a bit about my bag…
I used 3.5 inch strips for the outside…
I used two layers of Pellon fusible interfacing to achieve the body I was looking for…and then I added another 3 inch strip of interfacing along the top edge to give it extra strength…
since I don’t care for a seam at the bottom of the bag, I opted to make my cork accent one piece that would cover the bottom and come up each side…

since this cork is so awesome, I decided to make my handles using it…I cut a piece 3 inches wide, folded in half with wrong side together and sewed all around it..they turned out fabulously!!

    I love the bag. The cork sure makes a difference. It really accents the bag fabrics too.
