I am so in LOVE with Sandi Henderson's Meadowsweet line of fabric. I bought a half yard bundle of Meadowsweet, and included in the bundle was splashy rose. I loved that fabric. So when she came out with Meadowsweet 2, I became even more in love with splashy rose in this colorway. I finally went a head and bought it. The colors are so pretty and so springy, you can't not fall in love!
I choose to make the 4 pocket tote with these fabrics. I love this tote, it is so simple, yet useful. There are 4 pockets on the outside and 3 on the inside. It closes with a magnetic snap and has just the right size of straps. Whenever I make a purse with this pattern it gets snapped right up out of the shop. The only reason I am not keeping this bag, is that I am going to try to make one that is a few inches larger! Having 2 kids, I don't think this will hold everything that I need to carry. I have these fabrics in mind for the one that I am going to make myself!
I bought the fabrics for Hawthorne Threads. I really love their shop! It is very easy to navigate and they have a great newsletter that they send out about once a week! The other plus is that they are located in New York. I live in New Jersey. I purchased the fabrics on Friday morning and had them in my mailbox on Monday afternoon. I only payed $2.50 for shipping and I had a tracking number! They have a really great selection of fabrics in their store! You should really check them out!
