I recently splurged on a tiny bit of this utterly expensive passionflower-print canvassy fabric. With only one meter to work with, and being desperately in love with it, I nixed my first idea (which was to make new cushions for the couch, but furnishings don't last long around here -- I have two cats with claws at the ready) and decided to make a tote bag instead. I only used half of what I had, and don't know what to do with the rest -- suggestions are welcome!
This is intended for use as a carry-on bag for an upcoming vacation. The handles are vinyl (it looked terrible on the thrifted footstool I pulled it off of last year but I knew it would be good for something), and the lining is cotton left over from another project.
My favourite part is the pocket, which is trimmed with a weird colour-swatchy motif that was printed on the selvage of the passionflower fabric.
For the pictures I put a pink towel in the bag to bulk it up a bit.
