Mouth Stitches Tote bag and fob.

The tote bag and key fob for the Mouthy Stitches swap are due to go in the mail tomorrow and I have just finished sewing the label on the inside of the lining so it is all ready to post to my partner.
I decided to make a Granny Square for one panel of the tote bag, in pretty colours which my partner likes,
 And then did a rainbowy AMH  feather on the other side, which looks very bright and colourful against the dark grey cotton/linen blend which I used for the main fabric.
This is the first time I have used these new leather "gemini stitches" labels which I bought after seeing them on the Bijou Lovely blog - my partner can always remove it if she wishes to reverse the bag.
And the matching key fob is made so that it can be worn over her wrist if needed - I have one like this for my car and house keys and I love it! It keeps your hands free and you are less likely to lose or drop your keys.

  17. Good to see such nice tote bags with beautiful customization. Tote bags are a symbol of stylish gesture and smart personality. Popularity of tote bag is increasing day by day. As it is a nice product, some customization can take the style/smartness to a new level. Wanna know more.
