Appleby Lane - Tote's......

I actually like making tote bags the best of all things, no idea why?

I am very proud of the knitting bags, as this is my own pattern and as I knit I think it will work perfectly for it's purpose.

The bag itself is around 17 inches wide by 13 inches high.  It's 100 % cotton fabric and has fleece interfacing on all the exterior fabrics and light interfacing on the rest.  They are $45 each, and are heavy duty and well worth the money in my humble opinion.  They are made with love, as I thoroughly enjoy making them.  I just love this fabric combination, the red just pops and red is my favourite colour.


 It has a magnetic snap and two big pockets on the inside for all your bits and bobs.  On either end of the bag there are two outside elasticated pockets that are around 8 inches deep.
 Closer look at the inside pockets.
 Exactly the same but different fabric.  Isn't this a fun fabric?
 Again a close up look at the pockets.
 This bag will hold a lot.
I do have a little of this yarn fabric to make another knitting tote.  It's yellow, coral, teal and grey.  I should be listing in the next few days, time permitting.

The Farmer's Market Foldable Totes, are made with an indoor/outdoor type fabric.  They are 16 inches high and 14 inches wide and fold down to around 6 inches square.  They are not lined but are durable, machine washable, and all the seams are enclosed with french seams.  These are so useful and so pretty.    They are $15 each.  Do you like the sunflower buttons, very Farmer's Market-isque!!  

Thistle Canvas Tote,  17 inches wide by 15 inches high.  Fully lined with a large pocket and a magnetic snap closure. $25  Heavy Duty, prefect to carry around everyday.  I could see this being used as a book bag.
 Green leaf cotton lining.  Matching large pocket.
I will be making more tote bags, I just haven't had time to make more before opening the shop.  If you have time check my Facebook Page Appleby Lane by mid-afternoon Canadian time on Saturday.

I hope these sell well for you...my daughters are all the time saying I should make stuff to sell, but I never have luck selling things. But I like to make useful things...I bet that is why you like making what you make.
