Mini Tulip Tote

I knew immediately that I was going to have to make this pretty bag

I loved the positivity of it, hope that makes sense lol..it is just a cute little bag, with pretty gathers and a lovely curvy shape

I made the straps long enough to sit on your shoulder, but I also love the shorter handles, they’d be perfect for an evening out

The fabrics used are a linen and cotton blend for the gathered outside and for the straps and the lining I used some of Amy Butler’s Gypsy Caravan fabric

The design is by Sarah Markos, you can read more about this bag on her blog

Notice that the bag stands up all on it’s own, inside is some clever stabilizer in the form of foam, so it is light but holds it’s shape. There are two pockets, both divided so you can keep your valuables safe and to hand

The bag has a squarish base, so when it is open you can see all your stuff easily

The bag closes with 2 strong magnetic snaps, one on each peak of the bag (love those gathers in the side seams)
