Spring Dot Tote

This tote has the gorgeous green that reminds me of spring! It is another Marimekko print that I have hoarded and loved! Time to put it to good use! It has been sewn here in Africa, by Celina. Inside we have put a bright green lining, found here as well, with 2 large pockets and a key fob. Magnetic enclosure. This bag is a smaller tote, 16″x14″x3″cut size. It can be used as a summer purse, or a shopping bag. The straps are a comfortable 11″ drop, so it’s easy to sling over the shoulder.

“Spring is Here” Tote

This tote truly emulates the color of spring! Different shades of red and pink just make me happy. The tote has been made from a vintage Marimekko curtain…donated by a lovely aunt! Lining is made with a brown and white calico print, and inside you will find 2 large pockets and a key fob. This tote is big enough to take to the farmers market, gym, school…etc. 18″x16″x3″. Magnetic enclosure.
