Shades of Yesterday Tote Bag

Shades of Yesterday Tote Bag - Andrie Designs

For a while now I’ve been mulling over the idea of a pieced, curved, tote bag of some sort… Something that allows one to really play with fabric combinations, use up some of those ever-hoarded scraps, and create a masterpiece of sorts that looks waaayyyyy more complicated than it really is!

After a bit of trial and error, because you know, me being me, those curves had to sit just right in their wonky, unevenness haha, I arrived at the Shades of Yesterday Tote Bag. This tote features a recessed zipper closure, two zipper pockets, and an adjustable cross body strap for comfortable wearing.
