A sweet and gorgeous panel from Lecien, is easily made into this lovely little tote bag ~ a Breath of Spring to brighten your day.
The kit comes with the panel (which includes the outer and the lining). The bonus is, there is also a little cosmetics purse included in the printed panel. You will need to provide your own zipper for this purse.
The bag is 12" wide x 10" high.
Becky has added some lovely touches to the basic panel ~ she highlighted the flower print on the front and back of the bag, with blanket stitch, as well as working stem stitch on the scallops at the top and the wider scallops at the bottom ~ to give dimension. We added a little zipper pull made from plaited embroidery thread with two little heart buttons stitched to the thread. Thread and buttons are not included with the panel. You will also need pellon for wadding.
This little panel has been languishing away in our store-room for quite a while, and how lovely it is to see it made into such a sweet little bag. Thank you Beck! The panel has instructions printed in Japanese, but we include English instructions for those who are not profiicent in the language.
There is not a seoarate pattern, as the instrucitons pertain to this panel exclusively, but, if you are keen, you could trace the bag shape before you make up the bag, and make a second bag in your own fabrics once you've made the bag from the panel.
