Time to put down the coffee. Time to dust off the sewing machine!!!
The outside of the tote bag will definitely be the green. It’s an indoor/outdoor fabric, so it will be easy care, and it’s crisp — it will hold its shape beautifully. The lining will be the quilted plaid, and the pockets will be the calicos, I’m not quite sure exactly how. But I AM sure that it will have a button on one of the inside pockets. Most all the bags I make HAVE to have a button (at LEAST one.)
If possible I like to use a vintage button. This one I found in my box of old buttons that belonged to my grandmother. I wish it were this big . . . but it’s not. I enlarged the photo to view how pretty it is!
