I made a gothic corset tote over the weekendhttp://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=270081.msg3046640#msg3046640 and I liked it so much I decided to make another, smaller tote for everyday purse-type use.  I had a stack of toile fabircs that I got from a great antique reupholstery store ($10 a yard!) and I loved the idea of mixing them.  so I used 2 toiles, same patterns but different colors, and lined the bag with a great floral called "Wuthering Heights" that I bought on clearance at Michael Levine ages ago.

Front of the bag:

I especially like how the toiles work together. I was thinking halfway through sewing that it wouldn't work at all but in the end I LOVE it!  hope you guys like!
